Planning and Development guidelines

Council’s Building and Development team has forms and guidelines to help you work your way through the planning, building, construction and development process and with installing fire safety measures.

Understanding the development process

To help you determine if you need to submit a DA or whether can build using other avenues, you need to consider the planning rules for where you live and what you want to build there.

Pre-development meetings

Central Coast Council aims to facilitate development through its Duty Planner service with town planners available without appointment during Council business hours to discuss preliminary development and zoning matters.
