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 Local Environmental Plan

Council has prepared a Planning Proposal for the new Cumberland Local Environmental Plan. The Planning Proposal describes how the provisions of the Auburn, Parramatta and Holroyd Local Environmental Plans, as they currently apply to the Cumberland local government area, will be consolidated to provide a single planning framework for all of Cumberland City.

The Planning Proposal for the new Cumberland Local Environmental Plan includes:

  • Harmonising existing planning controls into a single planning framework
  • A consistent minimum lot size for dual occupancy development in Cumberland of 585 square metres
  • Targeted changes to planning controls at selected locations, including Auburn Town Centre, Lidcombe Town Centre, Parramatta Road Corridor, Woodville Road Corridor and government owned sites
  • New Cumberland Heritage List, with the proposed delisting of nine heritage items that no longer meet the NSW heritage criteria for assessing heritage significance
  • Consistent planning approach for places of public worship
  • Consistent planning approach for sex services premises

Where no changes are proposed, the existing planning controls will carry over into the new planning controls for Cumberland City.

The draft Cumberland Local Environmental Plan will be supported by a new Cumberland Development Control Plan.
