Development Control Plans

Development Control Plans (DCP) provide additional planning and design guidelines to support the aims and objectives of the LEP. DCPs provide detailed controls and standards for addressing development issues at a local level and cover various development types, including residential, commercial and industrial.

Under Section 79C of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, the consent authority is required to take into consideration the relevant provisions of the DCP in determining a development application.

As a result of the State Government’s council amalgamations in May 2016, a number of different DCPs now apply to the City of Parramatta Local Government Area. Until such time a combined DCP is announced for the City of Parramatta, the DCPs that apply to the LGA are:
