2.3   Zone objectives and Land Use Table
(1)  The Land Use Table at the end of this Part specifies for each zone—
(a)  the objectives for development, and
(b)  development that may be carried out without development consent, and
(c)  development that may be carried out only with development consent, and
(d)  development that is prohibited.
(2)  The consent authority must have regard to the objectives for development in a zone when determining a development application in respect of land within the zone.
(3)  In the Land Use Table at the end of this Part—
(a)  a reference to a type of building or other thing is a reference to development for the purposes of that type of building or other thing, and
(b)  a reference to a type of building or other thing does not include (despite any definition in this Plan) a reference to a type of building or other thing referred to separately in the Land Use Table in relation to the same zone.
(4)  This clause is subject to the other provisions of this Plan.
Notes—
1   
Schedule 1 sets out additional permitted uses for particular land.
2   
Schedule 2 sets out exempt development (which is generally exempt from both Parts 4 and 5 of the Act). Development in the land use table that may be carried out without consent is nevertheless subject to the environmental assessment and approval requirements of Part 5 of the Act.
3   
Schedule 3 sets out complying development (for which a complying development certificate may be issued as an alternative to obtaining development consent).
4   
Clause 2.6 requires consent for subdivision of land.
5   
Part 5 contains other provisions which require consent for particular development.
2.4   Unzoned land
(1)  Development may be carried out on unzoned land only with development consent.
(2)  In deciding whether to grant development consent, the consent authority—
(a)  must consider whether the development will impact on adjoining zoned land and, if so, consider the objectives for development in the zones of the adjoining land, and
(b)  must be satisfied that the development is appropriate and is compatible with permissible land uses in any such adjoining land.
2.5   Additional permitted uses for particular land
(1)  Development on particular land that is described or referred to in Schedule 1 may be carried out—
(a)  with development consent, or
(b)  if the Schedule so provides—without development consent,
in accordance with the conditions (if any) specified in that Schedule in relation to that development.
(2)  This clause has effect despite anything to the contrary in the Land Use Table or other provision of this Plan.
2.6   Subdivision—consent requirements
(1)  Land to which this Plan applies may be subdivided, but only with development consent.
Notes—
1   
If a subdivision is specified as exempt development in an applicable environmental planning instrument, such as this Plan or State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008, the Act enables it to be carried out without development consent.
2   
Part 6 of State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008 provides that the strata subdivision of a building in certain circumstances is complying development.
(2)  Development consent must not be granted for the subdivision of land on which a secondary dwelling is situated if the subdivision would result in the principal dwelling and the secondary dwelling being situated on separate lots, unless the resulting lots are not less than the minimum size shown on the Lot Size Map in relation to that land.
Note—
The definition of secondary dwelling in the Dictionary requires the dwelling to be on the same lot of land as the principal dwelling.
2.7   Demolition requires development consent
The demolition of a building or work may be carried out only with development consent.
Note—
If the demolition of a building or work is identified in an applicable environmental planning instrument, such as this Plan or State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008, as exempt development, the Act enables it to be carried out without development consent.
2.8   Temporary use of land
(1)  The objective of this clause is to provide for the temporary use of land if the use does not compromise future development of the land, or have detrimental economic, social, amenity or environmental effects on the land.
(2)  Despite any other provision of this Plan, development consent may be granted for development on land in any zone for a temporary use for a maximum period of 52 days (whether or not consecutive days) in any period of 12 months.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted unless the consent authority is satisfied that—
(a)  the temporary use will not prejudice the subsequent carrying out of development on the land in accordance with this Plan and any other applicable environmental planning instrument, and
(b)  the temporary use will not adversely impact on any adjoining land or the amenity of the neighbourhood, and
(c)  the temporary use and location of any structures related to the use will not adversely impact on environmental attributes or features of the land, or increase the risk of natural hazards that may affect the land, and
(d)  at the end of the temporary use period the land will, as far as is practicable, be restored to the condition in which it was before the commencement of the use.
(4)  Despite subclause (2), the temporary use of a dwelling as a sales office for a new release area or a new housing estate may exceed the maximum number of days specified in that subclause.
(5)  Subclause (3)(d) does not apply to the temporary use of a dwelling as a sales office mentioned in subclause (4).
Land Use Table
Note—
A type of development referred to in the Land Use Table is a reference to that type of development only to the extent it is not regulated by an applicable State environmental planning policy.

4.5   Calculation of floor space ratio and site area
(1) Objectives The objectives of this clause are as follows—
(a)  to define floor space ratio,
(b)  to set out rules for the calculation of the site area of development for the purpose of applying permitted floor space ratios, including rules to—
(i)  prevent the inclusion in the site area of an area that has no significant development being carried out on it, and
(ii)  prevent the inclusion in the site area of an area that has already been included as part of a site area to maximise floor space area in another building, and
(iii)  require community land and public places to be dealt with separately.
(2) Definition of “floor space ratio” The floor space ratio of buildings on a site is the ratio of the gross floor area of all buildings within the site to the site area.
(3) Site area In determining the site area of proposed development for the purpose of applying a floor space ratio, the site area is taken to be—
(a)  if the proposed development is to be carried out on only one lot, the area of that lot, or
(b)  if the proposed development is to be carried out on 2 or more lots, the area of any lot on which the development is proposed to be carried out that has at least one common boundary with another lot on which the development is being carried out.
In addition, subclauses (4)–(7) apply to the calculation of site area for the purposes of applying a floor space ratio to proposed development.
(4) Exclusions from site area The following land must be excluded from the site area—
(a)  land on which the proposed development is prohibited, whether under this Plan or any other law,
(b)  community land or a public place (except as provided by subclause (7)).
(5) Strata subdivisions The area of a lot that is wholly or partly on top of another or others in a strata subdivision is to be included in the calculation of the site area only to the extent that it does not overlap with another lot already included in the site area calculation.
(6) Only significant development to be included The site area for proposed development must not include a lot additional to a lot or lots on which the development is being carried out unless the proposed development includes significant development on that additional lot.
(7) Certain public land to be separately considered For the purpose of applying a floor space ratio to any proposed development on, above or below community land or a public place, the site area must only include an area that is on, above or below that community land or public place, and is occupied or physically affected by the proposed development, and may not include any other area on which the proposed development is to be carried out.
(8) Existing buildings The gross floor area of any existing or proposed buildings within the vertical projection (above or below ground) of the boundaries of a site is to be included in the calculation of the total floor space for the purposes of applying a floor space ratio, whether or not the proposed development relates to all of the buildings.
(9) Covenants to prevent “double dipping” When development consent is granted to development on a site comprised of 2 or more lots, a condition of the consent may require a covenant to be registered that prevents the creation of floor area on a lot (the restricted lot) if the consent authority is satisfied that an equivalent quantity of floor area will be created on another lot only because the site included the restricted lot.
(10) Covenants affect consolidated sites If—
(a)  a covenant of the kind referred to in subclause (9) applies to any land (affected land), and
(b)  proposed development relates to the affected land and other land that together comprise the site of the proposed development,
the maximum amount of floor area allowed on the other land by the floor space ratio fixed for the site by this Plan is reduced by the quantity of floor space area the covenant prevents being created on the affected land.
(11) Definition In this clause, public place has the same meaning as it has in the Local Government Act 1993.
4.6   Exceptions to development standards
(1)  The objectives of this clause are as follows—
(a)  to provide an appropriate degree of flexibility in applying certain development standards to particular development,

However, this clause does not apply to a development standard that is expressly excluded from the operation of this clause.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless the consent authority has considered a written request from the applicant that seeks to justify the contravention of the development standard by demonstrating—
(a)  that compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case, and
(b)  that there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify contravening the development standard.
(4)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless—
(a)  the consent authority is satisfied that—
(i)  the applicant’s written request has adequately addressed the matters required to be demonstrated by subclause (3), and
(ii)  the proposed development will be in the public interest because it is consistent with the objectives of the particular standard and the objectives for development within the zone in which the development is proposed to be carried out, and
(b)  the concurrence of the Planning Secretary has been obtained.
(5)  In deciding whether to grant concurrence, the Planning Secretary must consider—
(a)  whether contravention of the development standard raises any matter of significance for State or regional environmental planning, and
(b)  the public benefit of maintaining the development standard, and
(c)  any other matters required to be taken into consideration by the Planning Secretary before granting concurrence.
(6)  Development consent must not be granted under this clause for a subdivision of land in Zone RU1 Primary Production, Zone RU2 Rural Landscape, Zone RU3 Forestry, Zone RU4 Primary Production Small Lots, Zone RU6 Transition, Zone R5 Large Lot Residential, Zone E2 Environmental Conservation, Zone E3 Environmental Management or Zone E4 Environmental Living if—
(a)  the subdivision will result in 2 or more lots of less than the minimum area specified for such lots by a development standard, or
(b)  the subdivision will result in at least one lot that is less than 90% of the minimum area specified for such a lot by a development standard.
Note—
When this Plan was made it did not include all of these zones.
(7)  After determining a development application made pursuant to this clause, the consent authority must keep a record of its assessment of the factors required to be addressed in the applicant’s written request referred to in subclause (3).
(8)  This clause does not allow development consent to be granted for development that would contravene any of the following—
(a)  a development standard for complying development,
(b)  a development standard that arises, under the regulations under the Act, in connection with a commitment set out in a BASIX certificate for a building to which State Environmental Planning Policy (Building Sustainability Index: BASIX) 2004 applies or for the land on which such a building is situated,
