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 a Development Control Plan (DCP). Generally the purpose of a 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.
