Local Development Plans

The purpose of a Local Development Plan is to coordinate and assist in achieving better built form outcomes by linking lot design to future development. It can facilitate the design and coordination of development upon small and highly constrained lots, and supplement development standards contained within local planning schemes and the Residential Design Codes (R-Codes).

Local Development Plans are to be prepared, processed and advertised for public comment in accordance with the Planning and Development (Local planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 and require the approval of the Local Government.

Copies of the City’s approved Local Development Plans are set out below (please note Local Development Plans were formally known as Detailed Area Plans):
