Penrith Development Control Plan 2014

Development Control Plans (DCPs) are documents that supplement the provisions of Local Environmental Plans (LEPs) with more detailed planning and design guidelines.

The Penrith Development Control Plan 2014 (Penrith DCP 2014) has been prepared to support all planning instruments applying to the Penrith Local Government Area (LGA), including the Penrith LEP 2010. It represents a consolidation of all previous DCPs which applied to the City so that a single, City-wide DCP applies to the LGA. 

The Penrith DCP 2014 was adopted by Council on 23 March 2015 and came into effect on 17 April 2015.

Penrith DCP 2014 is Council’s current plan that facilitates development permitted under LEP 2010. DCP 2014 sets out Councils objectives and development controls on what built form and environmental outcomes are acceptable for different land uses and development types. Applicants must demonstrate compliance with these controls when they propose new developments.

A full review of DCP 2014 is currently underway to respond to the large amount of strategy work being undertaken through our Local Strategic Planning Statement and our program for an Local Environmental Review. Other factors that have influenced the need for a DCP review include strategic planning, need for more contemporary controls to reflect community needs, recent legislation and standardisation changes. The DCP Review will establish a contemporary set of development controls that will guide future built form outcomes for Penrith City. The review will be an extensive project that considers every element and control of DCP 2014, representing a wholesale review and restructure of the plan. The DCP program will be undertaken in three (3) 3 stages:

  1. Housekeeping amendment
  2. Comprehensive review
  3. At the completion of Councils strategy programThese stages are intended to align with the LEP Review.

The Plan can be downloaded in two volumes:

Penrith DCP 2014 Volume 1 (Parts A, B, C and D)

Penrith DCP 2014 Volume 2 (Parts E and F)
