Gosford Development Control Plan (DCP) 2013

Matcham Hills DCP


The Development Control Plan (DCP) provides support for the guidelines and provisions outlined in the Gosford LEP.  

The DCP assists in for the development of land to ensure that development respects our local character, is of a high standard of design, considers neighbours and manages potential effects on the environment.

The Gosford DCP 2013 came into effect on 11 February 2014 (the same day as the Gosford Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2014) and replaces all current 109 DCPs.

Chapter 3.4 Secondary Dwellings is now retracted and combined with the new DCP 2013 Chapter 3.1 Dwelling Houses, Secondary Dwellings and Ancillary Development.
