As way of background, Council prepared the Consolidated Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and DCP to produce a single set of planning rules for Canterbury-Bankstown. These planning documents must be taken into consideration when preparing and determining development applications.

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment is currently finalising its review of the LEP, resulting in the need to update the DCP to ensure it aligns, together with other administrative amendments.

You are encouraged to read the draft amendments to see if there are any proposals relevant to you.

Council is providing an extended exhibition period closing on 5 February 2023. This is to allow more time for people to comment. You can also view the draft amendments at the Council’s Customer Service Centres (Bankstown and Campsie) during business hours.
