The format within each chapter of DCP 2015 has been designed to ensure that the Plan is clearly understood and to enable the Plan to integrate with Council's ePlanning processes. The layout within each chapter is consistent through the use of the following formatting for each DCP control:
- Applies to Land
- Exceptions (if applicable)
- Notes (if applicable)
Prior to granting development consent for development, Council must be satisfied that the proposed development satisfies the relevant provisions of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000, any relevant environmental planning instrument including Coffs Harbour LEP 2013 and relevant provisions of this Plan.
Development proposals are required to meet the objectives and requirements of relevant DCP controls that may be contained within more than one part of this Plan, unless alternative solutions are proposed that will provide a better response to meeting the objectives of this Plan.
