Development Control Plans & Codes

Council's Development Control Plans are used in conjunction with the Murrumbidgee and Jerilderie Local Environmental Plans.  The LEP provides the legal framework by which Council’s development decisions are made and sets out objectives, zonings, zoning provisions and development requirements.  

This Plan supplements the LEP by providing general information and detailed guidelines and controls which related to the decision making process.  The LEP and this Plan provide the land use planning and development controls for the Murrumbidgee local government area.

Murrumbidgee Council Section 7.12 Plan


We have prepared a draft Land Use Plan to guide the future planning, development and sustainability of the Murrumbidgee Council area.
This Plan, if adopted, will provide the basis for the new Local Environmental Plan for our Council area. It will identify what development can go where and the planning provisions that must be met by different development types.
The draft Land Use Plan describes the context for planning in the Murrumbidgee Council area, as well as the constraints and opportunities for future development.  It recommends various areas for rezoning to cater for future development types.
The plan has been developed after investigating the issues, constraints and opportunities affecting the Council area and follows on from extensive community consultation over the last 18 months.
Submission closed on 18 March 2022 and changes are crrently being made to reflect the communities concerns.

For further information or questions please contact Council’s Planning and Environment Department on 1300 676 243.
