Development Control and Structure Plans

Development Control Plans (DCPs) are adopted by Council to provide greater planning detail for developments, supplementing the zoning and development standards contained within Local Environmental Plans.  

They promote better development throughout the City, protecting the community's lifestyle and enjoyment of town centres and neighbourhoods.

The NSW Planning System allows applicants to provide alternative design solutions to meet identified objectives or outcomes and have these alternatives considered on merit. Consult with Council planning staff for more information.

There are a number of Development Control Plans that apply to Fairfield City, including the Fairfield City Wide Development Control Plan 2013 and Site Specific Development Control Plans that apply to either town centres or development sites. There are also Development Control Plans that may not yet be in force, however, have been prepared and are awaiting a rezoning.
