DCP Amendments and New Contributions Plan adopted

Amendments to Mosman Development Control Plans (DCPs) and a new Contributions Plan have been adopted by Council at its meeting on 5 June 2018.

Amended Mosman DCPs

Development Control Plans (DCPs) are plans adopted by Council to support the Mosman Local Environmental Plan 2012 and provide more detailed planning and design guidelines. The DCPs apply when a development application is lodged for proposed building works.

A series of housekeeping and heritage amendments to Mosman’s DCP have been made pursuant to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 (the Regulation), and come into effect on 21 June 2018. The amendments are generally minor in nature and include updated content and references, primarily arising from recent changes to NSW planning legislation, and updated content relating to heritage conservation area property rankings. A complete list of amendments is detailed in the Changes Table. The amended DCPs will be available on Council’s website on 21 June.

The amendments apply to all three Mosman DCPs – that is, the Residential DCP, Business Centres DCP and Open Space and Infrastructure DCP.

New Mosman Contributions Plan

Local infrastructure contributions are legislated under the provisions of Section 7.12 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and authorise Council to levy a monetary contribution which is used towards the provision of public amenities and services.

Council has adopted a new Mosman Contributions Plan 2018 which came into effect on 14 June 2018.  The new plan features updated references resultant of changes to NSW planning legislation, and an updated schedule of works to be funded under the plan – e.g. possible redevelopment of the Allan Border Oval Pavilion and Middle Head Oval Pavilion, and various playground upgrades. The plan applies to most land in the local government area, including all residential and all business zoned land.

The DCP amendments and new Contributions Plan were considered by Council at its meetings on 3 April 2018 and 5 June 2018, and publicly exhibited during April and May 2018.
