Council Development Policies and Plans
To assist in the effective and consistent running of Council, policies are developed, and adopted by Council. There are a number of policies that relate to the Environmental Services Division, including those listed below.
Development Control Plan
The Local Environmental Plan (LEP) does not normally provide detailed guidance with regard to specific development design and location. This detail is provided via the Development Control Plan (DCP). Generally the purpose of the DCP is to indicate to developers what level of detail is required with certain types of applications and what standards are sought with the design of certain developments.
Dubbo City Council, at its meeting on 22 April 2013, resolve to make Development Control Plan 2013. Development Control Plan 2013 repeals the following Rural, Urban and General DCPs:
Designing for Access and Mobility - G3.1
Exempt and Complying Development - G4.1
Flood Prone Lands - Urban Areas - G2.2
Dryland Agriculture - R1.1
Intensive Agriculture - R1.2
Small Farm Estates - R1.3
Villages - R2.1
Light Industrial Industry - U4.1
Residential Country - U2.4
Residential Fringe - U2.2
Residential Suburban and Residential Medium Density - U2.1
Sub-Regional Business - U3.2
Urban/Rural Buffer - U1.1
Development Control Plan 2013 came into effect on 6 May 2013.

Contribution plans enable Council to levy contributions where anticipated development will, or is likely to, impact on infrastructure, including roads, parks, water and sewer.
Contributions are determined by analysing the cost of existing infrastructure, existing demand, anticipated growth and the cost of works required to meet the demands created by a development.
