This tab relates to the process behind the preparation of the SDCP 2014 as effective on 22 October 2014.
NSW State Government legislation requires that only a single Development Control Plan (DCP) can apply to any parcel of land. This requirement takes affect six months after the commencement of the standard instrument Local Environment Plan for an area.
Following the commencement of Shoalhaven LEP 2014 on April 22 2014, Council resolved to exhibit and finalise the SDCP 2014 by 22 October 2014.
The SDCP 2014 reduces the number of DCPs in Shoalhaven from over 100 to one making it easier for planning authorities, business and the community to determine the controls that apply to a site. As well as being more user friendly, the SDCP 2014 has been designed to be consistent with SLEP 2014 and remove potential conflict between chapters of the SDCP 2014.
