Plan review at Woollahra


At its meeting of 26 October 2020, Council approved the Woollahra Development Control Plan 2015 (Amendment No. 5). Read the full Council resolution here.

The Woollahra DCP 2015 (Amendment No. 5) responds to the introduction of the Low Rise Housing Diversity Code (the Code). It seeks to update and strengthen the controls to apply to the following housing types that were introduced by the Code:

  • Manor house – being a type of residential flat building containing three or four attached dwellings.
  • Multi dwelling housing (terraces) – being three or more attached dwellings on one lot of land, facing and generally aligned along one or more public roads.

Manor houses are a type of residential flat building and multi dwelling housing (terraces) are a type of multi dwelling housing. Consequently, the amendment will make minor administrative changes to insert references to manor houses and multi dwelling housing (terraces) alongside the existing references to residential flat buildings and multi dwelling housing.

The changes are distributed throughout Woollahra DCP 2015, with the majority being in Chapter B3 General Development. The Woollahra DCP 2015 (Amendment 5) applies to the entire Woollahra local government area.

The new planning controls come into effect on Monday 7 December 2020.

The public exhibition was open from Wednesday 22 July 2020 to Friday 21 August 2020.
