In order to deliver the vision of the Byron Bay Town Centre Masterplan, changes to our planning controls for the town centre are required.

Thankyou for your feedback and letting us know what you thought. For a summary of the feedback visit our report to Council in 13 May meeting agenda.

From 20 August the planning controls, to improve the development outcomes for the town centre, are included in our Byron Local Environmental Plan 2014 (LEP).

Key changes include:

  • Introduction of a Building Height Allowance clause for development located on flood prone land and a new Building Height Allowance Map
  • Design Excellence controls and a new Design Excellence Map
  • Active Street Frontage controls and a new Active Street Frontages Map
  • The formation of a Design Excellence Panel

The LEP amendment is supported by a new chapter of the Byron Development Control Plan DCP 2014 Chapter E10 Byron Bay Town Centre which outlines additional development provisions to guide better development outcomes in the town centre.
