Planning for the future of the Central Coast
On 23 November 2016 Council resolved to prepare a Planning Proposal to consolidate the provisions of the Local Environmental Plans (LEPs) operating across the Central Coast Local Government Area (LGA). Council also resolved to prepare a consolidated Development Control Plan (DCP) to harmonise planning controls.
The ultimate goal is to have one LEP and one DCP that will help improve our local environment, encourage investment, create new jobs and quality housing for the growing population of the Central Coast.
Public Exhibition and Community Engagement
The draft CCLEP and CCDCP were placed on public exhibition from 6 December 2018 to 28 February 2019. A number of information and pop up sessions were held by Council at locations across the Central Coast during this period. Please refer to the Community Engagement folder in the document library for further information.
A copy of the exhibition material including the Planning Proposal, draft CCLEP, draft CCDCP, and other supporting documents can be downloaded from the Document Library on this page.
Councillors were provided with an information package which included a summary of all public exhibition material and related information. A copy of the information package can be downloaded from the documents library on this page.
A report on the outcomes of the public exhibition process was to be considered by Council on the 9 December 2019 but was deferred for further information. The report was then considered at the 9 March 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting where finalisation of the CCLEP was deferred for revision and reconsideration at a date yet to be announced. Staff are working with Councillors to progress the draft Central Coast Local Environmental Plan (CCLEP) and draft Central Coast Development Control Plan (CCDCP).
