Wilton Growth Area Development Control Plan

Wilton Growth Area is located at the junction of the Hume Motorway and Picton Road within the Wollondilly Shire Local Government Area. Separate from the metropolitan growth corridors of Sydney, Wilton will become a new town providing 15,000 new homes over the next 20 to 30 years.

Locale Consulting reviewed and restructured the Wilton Growth Areas Draft Development Control Plan (DCP). The DCP was originally prepared by NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in conjunction with Wollondilly Shire Council.

Integral to the project was a series of staff workshops and meeting with NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. As Council was responsible for implementing the draft Wilton Growth Area DCP, it was critical that staff could influence the content and ensure that desired outcomes would be produced. This is where the staff workshops were an important part of the process. Equally, it was important that the DCP could be effectively implemented over the long term and remained flexible to changes in technology and trends whilst keeping the broader picture in mind.

The DCP was rewritten to create a succinct document with objectives and controls that reflect the overall strategic planning intent whilst also being easy to interpret and implement.

Locale Consulting was successful bringing a fresh set of eyes and broad level approach to the review of the DCP. Our significant experience in this form of planning, and the ability to lead Council through a positive planning process, ultimately led to an improved DCP which was accepted by the State Government.
