Amendments to Development Control Plan Section A3 - Development of Flood Liable Land


One of Council’s key land use planning documents, the Development Control Plan (DCP), is being updated, and you are invited to have your say.

At a Council meeting on 26 October 2023, it was agreed to amend the Tweed Development Control Plan Section A3. The change will make it easier for Council Officers to more consistently apply the rules which define ‘habitable area’ and 'minor extensions' below the flood planning level.

The amendment is limited to only consider and update the definition of 'habitable area.' A more comprehensive review of the DCP will occur in 2024 following completion of the Tweed Valley Flood Study Update and Expansion Report.

What is a Development Control Plan?


A Development Control Plan (DCP) is a written document that supports the Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and expands its principal development standards. It is a locally adopted plan and guides council staff, developers and landowners in the requirements needed and provides guidelines for development. A DCP contains a range of measures such as planning principles, objectives and controls for buildings and also provides controls for topics such as landscaping, drainage and car parking.
