Council is seeking comment from the community on the draft consolidated Ku-ring-gai Development Control Plan.
The Ku-ring-gai Development Control Plan and Ku-ring-gai Local Centres Development Control Plan are planning documents that provide detailed guidelines to supplement and support the Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan 2015 and Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan (Local Centres) 2012.
The amendment seeks to consolidate Ku-ring-gai Development Control Plan (KDCP) and Ku-ring-gai Local Centres Development Control Plan (KDCP LC) into a single plan.
Following its public exhibition, Council resolved on Tuesday 17 March 2020 to adopt the Planning Proposal for the consolidation of the Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan (Local Centres) 2012 and Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan 2015 to form a single LEP for the whole of Ku-ring-gai. The Planning Proposal has been submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) for finalisation.
Development control plans (DCPs) provide guidance for development by giving effect to aims of a LEP. They facilitate development and assist in achieving land use objectives. Ku-ring-gai currently has two development control plans, one supporting each of Ku-ring-gai’s local environmental plans. In order to align with the new consolidated Ku-ring-gai Local Environmental Plan (KLEP) when it is made, it is intended that the KDCP and KDCP LC be consolidated into a single document.
The process for consolidating the DCPs was achieved by merging the KDCP LC into the KDCP to form a single DCP applying to the whole of the local government area. The proposed new consolidated DCP will give effect to the aims and objectives in Ku-ring-gai’s new consolidated Local Environmental Plan. This will provide a direct link between the two single documents.
- Merging the two DCPs and Minor amendments – updating references to the KLEP, updating references to the decimal section numbering of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 as amended in 2017, correcting formatting irregularities, consolidation of maps and images, and merging of Local Centres objectives to be present within the KDCP to form the new draft consolidated DCP.
- Part 1 Introduction – inclusion of references to Local Centre land use zones and aims as detailed in KDCP LC.
- Part 14 Urban Precincts – inclusion of six urban sites from KDCP LC; St Ives Local Centre, Turramurra Local Centre, Pymble Local Centre, Gordon Local Centre, Lindfield Local Centre and Roseville Local Centre, along with their accompanying Masterplans.
- Part 13 Tree and Vegetation Preservation – updated references to current legislation.
- Part 25 Notification – removal of Part 25, with notification provisions now within the Ku-ring-gai Community Participation Plan adopted in December 2019.
- Holford Crescent, Gordon – following Council’s adoption of the consolidated KLEP, Council’s commitment to the retention and enhancement of Holford Crescent is made in the draft consolidated DCP with site specific controls included under Part 14J of the draft consolidated DCP.
