We're inviting feedback on the Draft Waverley Development Control Plan (DCP) 2012 (Amendment No. 5).

What is the DCP?

The Waverley Development Control Plan (DCP) 2012 applies to the whole Local Government Area (LGA) and came into effect in July 2013. The DCP contains detailed planning and design guidelines for specific uses or areas that are intended to complement the development standards contained in Local Environmental Plans (LEPs).

What amendments are proposed?

The annual housekeeping amendment, which has been prepared by Council officers, seeks to address matters that were not covered by the project scope of Amendments No. 3 and 4, and that have been raised through further consultation with Council and Council staff. Arising from consultation and research of best-practice, there are a range of matters being addressed in DCP Amendment No. 5.

These amendments (shown in red text) within the draft DCP relate to footpath seating, Aboriginal heritage, universal housing design, calculation of setbacks, detached dual occupancies, solar access, car parking, additions to residential flat buildings, child care centres, and trial trading hours, among other things.
