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.

Duty Planner Service
Council provides a free Duty Planner Service to assist with enquiries over the phone or in person relating to town planning matters. To assist with your enquiry when requesting to speak with a Duty Planner you will be asked by our Customer Service staff for address of property, development type and enquiry details.
Council Duty Planners also offer free pre-development application lodgement consultations to assist prospective applicants to familiarise themselves with the planning process. Formal plans or documents are not required for these sessions.
Appointments can be scheduled to speak with a Duty Planner for general planning enquiries, pre-lodgement discussion and development application lodgement between the hours of 9am to 1:30pm. It is recommended you make an appointment with the Duty Planner so that sufficient time can be allocated for your enquiry. You can make an appointment by phoning our Customer Service Team on 02 6740 2100.
