Draft Richmond Valley Development Control Plan 2021

In accordance with Part 3 Division 2 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000, Council gives public notice of the exhibition of Draft Richmond Valley Development Control Plan 2021 (the Draft DCP).

The exhibition of this document will commence Wednesday 24 March 2021, with the submission period concluding on Thursday 6 May 2021.

The Draft DCP prescribes development standards and controls for development as applicable to urban and rural land within the Richmond Valley local government area (LGA). It is intended that the Draft DCP will replace Richmond Valley DCP 2015.

The DCP complements the Richmond Valley Local Environment Plan 2012, which is the principle planning scheme for the Richmond Valley LGA and determines land use zones. More information on the Richmond Valley LEP 2012 can be found on the NSW legislation website.

All interested persons are invited to inspect the Draft DCP and make written submissions to be received by 4.30pm on Thursday 6 May 2021.  If an objection to any content of the Draft DCP is made, the grounds of objection must be specified in the submission. Please note that all submissions, including any personal information, will be publicly available documents.
