Part C2 - Medium Density Housing of the Kogarah DCP 2013

As part of the preparation of Stage 3 – Residential Controls and Precincts of the Georges River Development Control Plan 2020, a draft amendment to Part C2 - Medium Density Housing of the Kogarah DCP 2013 has been prepared as the first task. The key aims of this task are to:

  • address inconsistencies between Kogarah LEP 2012 and Kogarah DCP 2013; and

  • address transition issues between low density and medium/high density areas.

At its meeting on 25 May 2020, Council adopted Part C2 - Medium Density Housing; with amendments as a result of submissions received; and review by the Design Review Panel and Council officers. The adopted Part C2 DCP has replaced the current Part C2 - Medium Density Housing and repealed Appendices 2, 3 and 4 of the Kogarah DCP 2013. Consequential changes have also been done to Part A Introduction as a result of the adopted Part C2 DCP.

This adopted DCP will be incorporated into the Georges River Development Control Plan 2020.
