Mosman LEP and DCP Amended

Posted Tuesday 16 December 2014

On 12 December 2014, amendments to Mosman LEP 2012 and Residential DCP came into effect.

These include:

  • New and amended objectives for the R2 Low Density Residential zone, clause 4.3 Height of buildings and clause 4.4 Floor space ratio in the LEP to strengthen objectives and for consistency; and
  • New local clauses 4.3A and 6.6 in the LEP for maximum wall height, maximum number of storeys and minimum landscaped area, to reinforce fundamental controls which have defined the character of housing in Mosman for over 20 years. These clauses are carried across from the Residential DCP with some change, and omitted from the DCP.

A savings and transitional provision applies, meaning that these amendments will apply only to any development application made on or after this date.

The development application form checklist has been amended to reflect these changes. A Clause 4.6 variation is required to be provided with a development application if the wall height development standard in new clause 4.3A of the LEP is exceeded.

The amendments to the LEP can be viewed on the NSW Legislation Website .
