The Kyogle Development Control Plan 2014 (the DCP) makes provisions to guide the design of development proposals, the preparation of applications for development consent and the assessment of development applications in the Kyogle Council Local Government Area. Council is required under Section 79C of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 to take into consideration the relevant provisions of the DCP in determining development applications on land to which the DCP applies. The DCP comprises distinct chapters that each deal with a type of development or development within a particular Zone or Zones. Where a type of development or development in a particular Zone is not listed in this DCP, applications will be assessed on a merit basis. The entire DCP and individual chapters can be accessed below. The Introduction contains notes on using the DCP.
