Development Control Plans

A Development Control Plan (DCP) provides detailed guidelines for the design and assessment of proposed developments. A DCP supports the planning controls in the Local Environmental Plan

To check which DCP applies to your land, please view the DCP map
 

Georges River Development Control Plan (Interim Policy)

Georges River Council has four DCPs from the two former Councils (as listed below). The controls are inconsistent as they reflect the former Council areas. The aim of the Georges River Development Control Plan (Interim Policy) is to set a consistent approach for the assessment of residential development within the Georges River local government area (LGA), until such a time as a comprehensive DCP is prepared and implemented.

 

Georges River Development Control Plan 2020

The Georges River Development Control Plan (GRDCP 2020) aims to harmonise controls in the DCPs applying to land within the LGA to create a DCP for the whole LGA.

The GRDCP 2020 supports the Georges River LEP 2020 (GRLEP 2020) and will replace some of the current DCPs, the Interim Policy and former Hurstville Council policies.

The GRDCP 2020 will become effective upon the gazettal of the GRLEP 2020.
