Development Control Plans

A Development Control Plan (DCP) contains detailed development controls that apply to particular types of development and development in particular areas.

Hurstville City Council’s DCP refines and supplements the provisions contained in environmmental planning instruments such as Hurstville Local Environmental Plan 2012 and Hurstville City Centre Local Environmental Plan 1994.

DCPs are developed in accordance with provisions in Part 3, Division 6 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 which includes public consultation.  To review current DCPs under development refer to our Strategic Planning pages.

Advisory Note - DCP 1

On 7 December 2012 Hurstville Local Environmental Plan 2012 (HLEP 2012) commenced. LEP 2012 applies to all land within the Hurstville Local Government Area (except the Hurstville City Centre).

The Hurstville Local Environmental Plan 1994 ceases to apply to the land to which LEP 2012 applies, as a consequence of HLEP 2012.

Should there be any inconsistencies between HLEP 2012 and DCP 1, the provisions of LEP 2012 shall prevail. It is intended that the objectives and controls in DCP 1 apply to development to the extent that they are not inconsistent with HLEP 2012.

A copy of the HLEP 2012 and maps can be found at: http://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/viewtop/inforce/epi+613+2012+cd+0+N/

NOTE:  Council is currently exhibiting a Draft Amendment to DCP No. 1 which relates to multiple dwellings and residential flat buildings. Please refer to the "Public Notices and Exhibitions" page of the website under the "Council" heading for further information.
