To check which regulations apply to your project:
1 Confirm your zone
Zones can indicate environmental management areas, different residential densities, neighbourhood precincts and industrial and business areas. Different controls apply to each type of development within each zone.
2 Search the DCP
Once you know your residential zone, use the web-friendly indexes in our development control plan to find out what controls apply dwelling houses, secondary dwellings, dual occupancy and other developments within that zone.
These development controls include streetscape and building form, setbacks, landscaping, layout, privacy, parking and waste management.
