Planning Controls (LEP, DCP and SWGA)

Camden Council Region map

Camden Local Government Area (LGA)

For most of Camden LGA, there are two key planning documents that apply:

The Camden LEP 2010 establishes zones that allow certain types of uses and standards that regulate what kind of development can happen.

The Camden DCP 2019 is a detailed guideline governing a particular type of development or a particular area.

Please note:  If your land is located in the South West Growth Area and has been rezoned, the Camden LEP and DCP is ‘switched off’ and does not apply.  See South West Growth Area (Camden).
