D&B-Application Form to Vary a Development Standard

This form aims to assist you with the preparation of a written application seeking a variation to a development standard under Clause 4.6 of the Newcastle Environmental Plan.

Development standards are a means to achieving an environmental planning objective and can be numerical or performance based. Some developments may achieve planning objectives despite not meeting the required development standards. The planning system provides flexibility to allow these objectives to still be met by varying development standards in exceptional cases.
