Development Control Plan

The Richmond Valley Development Control Plan 2015 was adopted by Council on 22 December 2015 to commence on 4 January 2016. The DCP complements the Richmond Valley Local Environmental Plan 2012 which came into effect on 21 April 2012.

Parts H, I and J are based upon a variety of supporting chapters on a range of subjects.

The DCP has the following structure:
