Planning Controls (LEP, DCP and Contributions Plan)

Council has a number of plans, policies and strategies that help shape future development within the Hunters Hill local government area. These documents are outlined below.

Development Control Plan (DCP)

The Hunters Hill Development Control Plan includes detailed controls for all development within the local government area. It came into effect on 12 August 2013.

In addition to this document, in November 2015 Council replaced Chapter 4.4 of the DCP with a new Chapter 4.4 – Gladesville Village Centre (Locality Specific Provisions) which has a completely different look and feel and which incorporated findings of the Future Gladesville project.

Local Environmental Plan

The Hunters Hill Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2013 is the primary document that provides Council’s planning objectives and controls.

Variations to Development Standards Clause 4.6 Register

The Hunters Hill Local Environment Plan 2012 (RLEP 2012) sets out development standards for each zone in the local government area.

Under the HHLEP 2012 Council is allowed some flexibility when applying planning controls to certain developments, and maintains a register of these variations to then be submitted quarterly to the Department of Planning. It is important to note that these developments whilst they may not meet certain development standards are achieving strict planning objectives set by Council.

The register of variations to development standards, applied to development applications within the LGA, is available for public view below.

Development Contribution Plan

To assist the Council to maintain and improve the standard of its community infrastructure some development applications, construction certificates and complying development certificates are charged a fee if the total cost of works exceed a certain amount.

In order to administer this fee Council has prepared a developer contributions scheme under Section 7.12 (formally S94A) of the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. This current plan is Hunter’s Hill Council Section 94A Developer contributions Plan 2014. It is valid for five years and is due for renewal in 2019.

Contribution plans are designed to collect contributions from new development, including residential development, to improve and expand open space and recreation facilities throughout Hunter’s Hill Council.  The maximum contribution that may be levied is 1% of the development cost. The levy will be applied to all types of development with a cost over $100,000.

Council has prepared a new Section 7.12 development contribution plan to cover the next operational period and to replace the Section 94A Developer Contributions Plan 2014. Council adopted the draft Hunter’s Hill Council Local Infrastructure Contribution Plan 2020 for public exhibition at its meeting on Monday 11 November 2019. This draft Contribution Plan 2020 is on exhibition from Thursday 14 November to Wednesday 11 December 2019.

It is important that new development contributes to local infrastructure provision in the area, for the community’s overall benefit and enjoyment. It is also important that the community participate in the preparation of the plan through its public exhibition to understand the local infrastructure works Council would spend the development contributions on over the next five years.

To find out how to participate in the public exhibition of the draft Contribution Plan click here s7.12 Contribution Plan. Feedback, including your name, business name or organisation’s name, may be included in publicly available reports on the draft Contribution Plan 2020.
