Woollahra DCP 2015 (Amendment 18) was endorsed by Council on 25 October 2021 and came into effect on 6 December 2021.

The amendments to the Woollahra Development Control Plan 2015 (Woollahra DCP 2015) seek to update and strengthen the existing objectives and controls to:

  • minimise the impacts of groundwater drawdown as a consequence of underground structures, and
  • ensure there are no adverse hydrogeological impacts on any surrounding properties and infrastructure, both during and after construction.

The draft DCP applies to the entire Woollahra local government area. It amends the following chapters of the Woollahra DCP 2015.

  • Chapter A1: Introduction
  • Chapter D5: Double Bay Centre
  • Chapter E2: Stormwater and Flood Risk Management

Supporting technical documents prepared by GHD engineering consultants provide detailed hydrogeological and geotechnical assessments which informed the preparation of the draft DCP.
