Kempsey Development Control Plan Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Overview

The Kempsey Development Control Plan (DCP) is a document that provides guidance and requirements for development that should be taken into account when preparing a Development Application (DA). If you’re developing land or property, whether that’s building a new house, expanding your business premises, subdividing land, installing a retaining wall or adding another level to your dwelling, the plan sets out provisions that you need to consider and address in your DA. The DCP helps us all plan and understand the impacts of our development, large and small. Maximizing the benefits, while reducing any negative impacts.

NSW State legislation, development codes and standards change over time, reflecting new environmental and construction standards so it's important for us to update our own development controls to make sure that our local guidance is current, clear, consistent and easier to understand for everyone.

Right now, we have started a review of the existing DCP. We are identifying relevant current codes and requirements with the aim to propose smart revisions and necessary changes. This project will progress throughout this year and will run to mid 2025.

Our first step is to identify development issues that are important for consideration. As the DCP particularly involves local people, community groups and businesses who are involved in land, property, development and construction we want to understand your experiences in these areas.
