Waverley Development Control Plan 2012

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 (Amendment 9) was formally adopted on 1 September 2020 and is effective on 1 October 2020. It can be viewed by following the link below:
