What is the Development Control Plan?

    The Wagga Wagga Development Control Plan 2010 (DCP) is the document providing regulation of development within the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area. It is used by Council when assessing Development Applications.

    What are these amendments seeking to change in the Heritage Conservation Area?

    The amendment includes changes to how Development Application for additions, alterations and infill development shall be assessed within the Heritage Conservation Area.

    The amended controls are intended to allow for more flexibility in design for development in the Heritage Conservation Area. Focus is to be placed upon assessing the overall heritage and design outcomes of a complete development proposal, rather than individual aspects of developments. This approach emphasises the key aspects of the Conservation Area’s heritage significance in the development assessment process.

    A draft of the amended provision of Section 3 - Heritage Conservation of the Development Control Plan is available for viewing on this webpage.

    What are these amendments seeking to change in the area of Cooedong Lane?

    There are further draft provisions proposed to be included within the DCP, intended to control development along Cooedong Laneway. These provisions are in addition to the amended controls proposed for other locations in the Heritage Conservation Area.

    The draft provisions are included in the report presented to Council's meeting of 16 March, 2020. The report is available for viewing from this webpage.
