New planning controls for Cumberland City

Cumberland City Council is planning for the future of Cumberland City and we encourage you to have your say on our new planning controls.

Draft Cumberland Development Control Plan

Council has prepared a draft Cumberland Development Control Plan. This provides a single plan of detailed controls for planning and development in Cumberland City.

The draft Cumberland Development Control plan includes information on the following areas:

  • Controls and guidelines for residential, business and industrial development
  • Controls and guidelines for specific land uses, including places of public worship, sex services premises, childcare centres, community facilities and education facilities
  • Controls and guidelines for related activities including heritage, telecommunications, tree management, traffic and transport, stormwater management, waste management, sustainability, subdivisions and notification for applications.

Where no changes are proposed, such as site specific development controls, the existing planning controls will carry over into the new planning controls for Cumberland City.

The plan supports the new Cumberland Local Environmental Plan.
