Wollongong Development Control Plan

Wollongong Development Control Plan (DCP) is a set of Council policies that explain how developments need to be designed to meet the conditions of the Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and State-wide rules.

For example, an LEP might tell you how big your house can be compared to the size of your land, and the DCP will outline details like where windows or balconies should go, or how fences should be built.

There are many chapters in the DCP, and each one covers a different type of development. This includes everything from residential houses to businesses, bush fire and stormwater management, and local heritage.

There are also sections of the DCP that have specific rules for smaller local areas, like the City Centre, and numerous residential estates.

Many developments will need to meet the rules of more than one DCP chapter. If you're not sure which chapters apply to your development, ask us for development advice.

Our current DCP is shown below.
