Preparing an Application

When preparing a development application, it is recommended that you review Council's Gunnedah Local Environment Plan 2012 (LEP) and the accompanying Gunnedah Local Environmental Plan 2012 - Land Use Matrix as well as Council’s Development Control Plan (DCP). These plans provide detailed planning and guidance for new development and provide the basis for development assessment.

Council's Engineering Guidelines for Subdivisions and Developments should also be reviewed during the preparation of an application.
