Planning Control Review

Following on from the adoption of the Byron Bay Town Centre Masterplan, Council has entered the next exciting phase of reviewing the planning controls. 

Updating the planning controls will allow a new Byron Bay Development Control Plan (DCP) and changes to Byron Local Environmental Plan (LEP) to reflect the outcomes of the Masterplan and align with the unique characteristic and location of the town centre.  

Help us identify planning controls that will make Byron Town Centre a better place.

The ‘Planning Control review area’  below takes into account the Masterplan area and also the areas immediately adjacent to the town centre that also are in need of a planning control review. This will consider the wider connections and adjoining neighbourhoods directly influenced by town centre activities.

There are a number of ways that you can get involved in this project:

  1. Register your interest by contacting
  2. Log on to the dedicated Masterplan website where there will always be a way that you can participate in the process. Right now you can let us know “your big idea” by participating in an interactive mapping tool to let us know what is working and what is not.

The key steps for the planning control review for the Byron Bay Town Centre have been identified in the planning control review process chart.
