Amendments to Mosman DCPs on public exhibition

Amendments to Mosman’s Residential and Business Centres Development Control Plans (DCPs) are currently on public exhibition until 14 November 2013.

The amendments are proposed:

1. To correct an anomaly arising from the State Government mandated planning definition of ‘storey’; and

2. In response to issues raised by Land and Environment Court appeals.

The amendments relate to the height and setback of buildings, carports, and information to be submitted with a development application for larger or more controversial developments. Read more.

    We submitted a DA with the Western Boundary set back at 2m (the subfloor, ground and 1st floor are all at 900 existing) due to the uncertainties with the basement and the 3m rule. Had we been aware if this change we would have changed the design to be setback to 1.5m.

    This was only determined last week at the MDAP with further conditions to set back our Eastern boundary ground floor by 600m, which affects the design quite considerably.

    Could the application be reassessed based on a setback of 1500mm for each boundary without the need to spend more money on a S96 so we can apply for our construction certificate?


    The address is *****, my number is ***** – our planner was Alex Plumb. Our architect is going to try clarify too.

    • Chris, In answer to your question, no. A Section 96 Application is required to be submitted to Council to amend your development consent. I would recommend that you speak with the Council planner who assessed your application, or with Council’s Duty Planner, about this design change before you submit a S96 Application.
