Development Plan and Amendments


Development Plan

A development plan is a statutory policy document which guides the type of development that can occur within a council area. Planners use development plans to assess development applications. Each council area has a development plan specifically related to that area.

Council recently undertook consultation on a Residential (Limited Scope) Development Plan Amendment (DPA) . The DPA proposed to make the following changes:

  • Increase the minimum site areas for residential flat buildings and row dwellings from 150 or 200 square metres to 250 square metres
  • Increase frontages and rear and side setbacks for row dwellings, group dwellings and residential flat buildings
  • Introduce new general residential policies that guide the provision of storage, and the provision and design of on-site car parking
  • Clarify the procedure for measuring the distance from major shopping centres and transport routes
  • Change in assessing the site areas for residential flat building with the driveways now excluded
  • Designate Category 2 public notification for all developments involving two storey residential flat buildings
  • Update and correct the local and state heritage places to remove buildings that no longer exist.

The final draft of the DPA was endorsed by Council on the 2 July 2019 and was forwarded to the Minister for approval. The Minister has now approved the DPA and has given notice in the Government Gazette and the Development Plan has been amended accordingly
