Development Control Plans

Development Control Plans (DCPs) contain guidelines affecting development proposals within the region. They provide detailed guidelines for developers as well as others involved and interested in the development of the Snowy Valleys region.

The aim of the DCP is to encourage and facilitate a high standard of design, minimise land use conflicts and clearly set out the processes, procedures and responsibilities of applicants and Council. It also seeks to protect heritage significance, encourage innovative design and ensure developments are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

Development Applications are assessed on their merits using the relevant DCP and LEP together with State Environmental Planning Policies.

Snowy Valleys Development Control Plan 2019 came into force on 18 November 2019.
