What is on exhibition?

    The Draft Woollahra Development Control Plan (DCP) 2015 (Amendment No. 17) is on exhibition. 

    The draft DCP seeks to update and strengthen the provisions relating to site facilities by introducing objectives and controls to address the visual impact of hydraulic fire services, such as fire hydrants and boosters.

    What is a Development Control Plan (DCP)?

    A DCP contains detailed planning and building design guidelines for new development and for alterations and additions to existing development.

    The DCP that applies to the Woollahra LGA is the Woollahra Development Control Plan 2015.

    An overarching objective of the DCP is to give effect to the aims of the Woollahra Local Environmental Plan 2014 and facilitate development with reference to the unique characteristics of the area.
