Review of residential guidelines

Help us to shape the design of residential streets, housing and public open spaces to create liveable neighbourhoods that reflect Albury’s style and character.

We are reviewing Part 10 of the Albury Development Control Plan 2010 (ADCP 2010) which guides the design of housing and residential development in Albury.  TPG Town Planning and Urban Design and BuiltConsult have been engaged to assist us with the review.

How we will be listening to you?

There are many ways to be a part of shaping the future of housing in Albury, both before and after we draft the new guidelines.

No problems, share your ideas via this short survey (open until 8 June 2018).

What happens next?

Once we have heard your thoughts and ideas, we will commence drafting the amendments to Part 10 of the ADCP 2010. We will then come back to you to seek further feedback over the coming months before the document goes on formal public exhibition later in the year. This page will be updated with dates of future consultation as the project progresses.

Additional information

What is the Albury Development Control Plan 2010 and why are we reviewing Part 10?

The Albury Development Control Plan 2010 (ADCP) provides detailed planning and design controls that help guide development in AlburyCity (along with the Albury Local Environment Plan [ALEP] and other planning and environmental legislation).

The aim of the ADCP is to encourage and facilitate a high standard of design, minimise land use conflicts and support economically, socially and environmentally sustainable development.

The ADCP comprises of a number of Parts (Chapters), Maps and Appendices.

The subject of this review is ‘Part 10 - Development in the Residential Zones’ which covers a range of topics such as dwelling types and styles, design and appearance, private and public open space, urban design, subdivision layout and shed and outbuildings.

The ADCP has been in effect since 2010 but Part 10 has not undergone substantial review since 2000 and requires updating to enable us to provide effective design guidance, create liveable neighbourhoods and to respond to new state government housing design policies.

The current ADCP 2010 is available here.
