Development Control Plans

The Development Control Plans provide details and criteria for assessing development to support the statutory provisions of Orange LEP 2011. The plans provide information to guide development and also make reference to other plans, maps and supporting material to assist in achieving planning outcomes appropriate to the City.

The plans are also intended as an educational resource for planning in the City that helps to explain issues and measures that affect the development of Orange and to provide alternative planning solutions to issues.

Here you can find formal notifications of the adoption of recent DCPs.
