The Junee Shire Council Development Control Plan 2015 (DCP) was adopted by Council on 16 February 2016 and comes into force on 10 March 2016.
The DCP sits alongside the Junee Local Environmental Plan 2012 (LEP) and contains more detailed guidelines for development, which need to be considered in preparing a development application.
While DCPs do not have the same level of statutory weight as a Local Environmental Plan, they are an important consideration in the development planning, development assessment and approval process. The DCP helps achieve the aims and objectives of the LEP and indicates the preferred future direction for development within the Junee Shire.
The DCP was made by Council in consultation with the community and applies to all commercial, residential, industrial, rural, rural residential development and subdivision in Junee Shire. The DCP will be reviewed regularly, both on an as-needed basis, and as a scheduled annual review to ensure that the content remains up-to-date and consistent with the objectives defined by Council in response to consultation with the community.
