Development documents - Shoalhaven City Council

Development related DCPs and policies

Below is a list of commonly accessed policies and development control plans  (DCPs) that may be useful to your development proposal.  For a complete list of Council policies please access the Policy Register or for Council DCPs the Planning Register. There is also a separate list of development and building related application forms.

As of 22 October 2014, Shoalhaven Development Control Plan (DCP) 2014 comes into effect.

All development applications received from 22 October 2014 will be assessed under the provisions of the new Shoalhaven DCP 2014.  The DCP is available at

The DCP is designed to be viewed, downloaded or printed online from the DCP website.  Each DCP Chapter should not be read in isolation as there are a number of provisions contained in other chapters i.e. landscaping, site analysis, stormwater, car parking.  The updated DCP Matrix for the Generic Chapters is a useful tool to determine which Generic Chapters need to be considered or may need to be considered for each development type. 

Any enquiries regarding the Shoalhaven DCP 2014 should be directed to the DCP project team on 4429 5377.

Please note that all existing and draft DCPs are now rescinded, however those DCPs are still available in the register for historical purposes and for Development Applications that are currently being assessed.
