Blayney Shire Council


Control Plans

In addition to State Legislation and State Planning Policies, Blayney Shire Council has a range of local development controls that must be addressed when lodging a Development Application for development in the Shire including the following: 

  1. Local Environmental Plans:  There are two current plans in the Shire.  For the majority of the Shire the relevant plan will be Blayney Local Environmental Plan 2012 ('BLEP2012') which commenced on 23 November 2012.  If your land is within the Zone 1(c) area along Forest Reefs Road or Browns Creek Road then some of the controls from Blayney Local Environmental Plan 1998 ('BLEP1998') may still apply.  Please contact Council to discuss which plan is relevant to your land.  The plans cover matters including, but not limited to, land use zones, the permissibility of certain land uses in each zone, subdivision, and heritage (see links below). 

  2. Development Control Plan (DCP):  Council at its 25 June 2018 meeting approved a new comprehensive DCP which commenced on 2 July 2018 and can be accessed by clicking the link below.

  3. Developer Contribution Plan:  Development contributions are sometimes required to be paid by an applicant to assist in the provision of community infrastructure in accordance with the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979.   Contribution plans set out how much must be paid, when it must be paid, and how it will be spent by Council (see link below).

  4. Council Policies: Council may also provide guidelines on procedure and practice through Council resolutions and other policies.
