Ku-ring-gai Development Control Plan

The Ku-ring-gai Development Control Plan (DCP) provides detailed guidelines to guide the design and assessment of development applications for land covered by the Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan 2015 (majority of Ku-ring-gai).

The Ku-ring-gai Development Control Plan has been amended and came into effect on 24 June 2016.

View our planning controls webpage for information about what a DCP is and how it applies to your development application (DA). 

The DCP compliments Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan 2015.
