Background

The Local Environment Plan provides rules about what we can build and where, in our local government area.

The Development Control Plan provides detailed guidelines to support the Local Environmental Plan and ensure a high standard of development in Willoughby City. Our Draft Local Environment Plan (dLEP) and Development Controls Plan include some key changes.

These include:

  • Development rules in the Chatswood CBD, St Leonards and Willoughby’s Local Centres
  • Extending the Chatswood CBD
  • Significant height and floor space increases
  • Minimum landscape areas for housing development

These plans consolidate community feedback received over the past five years. The plans can be found here https://www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au/Development/Plan/Planning-Rules/Planning-Strategies(External link) They also implement the priorities of Willoughby’s Local Strategic Planning Statement for future planning, including:

  • housing
  • diversity
  • transport
  • jobs
  • health of our waterways, and
  • city resilience

The new draft LEP and DCP implement feedback you gave us in the development of the Local Centres Strategy, our Local Housing Strategy, Industrial Lands Strategy, Chatswood CBD Planning and Urban Design Strategy, and our Integrated Transport Strategy, all of which informed Council’s Local Strategic Planning Statement. Willoughby’s Local Strategic Planning Statement (External link).

The LSPS sets the strategic direction for Council’s new LEP and DCP.
