Development Control Plan

The Lord Howe Island Development Control Plan 2005 (DCP) provides guidelines, objectives and controls for certain types of development on Lord Howe Island.

The DCP is to be read in conjunction with the Lord Howe Island Local Environment Plan 2010 and any relevant State Environmental Planning policies, the Building Code of Australia and any relevant Australian Standard that may apply to all or part of the proposed development.

The DCP includes detailed principles for design context, including slope and soil stability, building orientation, climate, visual amenity, bulk and scale, building forms, materials and colours, energy and water efficiency, landscaping design and site access and parking.

The DCP will be reviewed and amended as part of a comprehensive review of planning controls for Lord Howe Island.

Information regarding leases, subdivision and easements can be found on the NSW Land and Property Information website.
