Land Use Planning
Local Environmental Plan 2011
Marrickville Council's Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2011 controls the development and use of land across the Marrickville Council area.
It is the starting point for all enquiries relating to zoning, land use and development.
LEP 2011 ensures that the amenity of the Marrickville area is maintained and protected, while also allowing for development to provide housing, employment and recreational opportunities.
Development Control Plan 2011
LEP 2011 is supplemented by Marrickville Development Control Plan (DCP) 2011 which sets standards for urban housing, business and commercial areas, environmentally sustainable practise (such as energy and water use efficiency) and access and mobility.
To assist in making these documents user-friendly a series of guides and explanatory notes have been prepared. These include the Urban Housing Plan guidelines on housing design and the Housing Approvals Guide provides simple and clear instructions for development applicants.
