Waverley Development Control Plan 2012

The exhibition for Draft Waverley Development Control Plan 2012 (Amendment No. 5) has now closed.

You can view all of the documentation relating to the draft amendment online at http://haveyoursaywaverley.com.au/dcp5.


The Development Control Plan (DCP) supports the controls outlined in the Local Environmental Plan (LEP) with more specific planning and design guidelines including built form controls, parking, biodiversity and tree preservation, signage, heritage conservation and safety.

The DCP provides guidelines for new residential development as well as residential alterations and extensions. It also details general controls for commercial developments, but identifies areas where more specific guidelines apply, such as the Bondi Junction centre, the Bondi beachfront area and the local villages.

The DCP was formally adopted on 2 August 2016  and became effective on 14 September 2016. It can be viewed by following the links below.
