Whoever thought a Council
Development Control Plan
could be so user friendly?
Welcome to DCPweb
The digital Development Control Plan web portal.
We don’t need to tell you all of the challenges of working with a PDF based DCP.
Development Control Plans are, by their very nature, cumbersome and difficult to use, inaccessible to the community and a pain point for all stakeholders including your own teams.
You are not alone. Councils across the country have the same challenge in trying to manage a large and complex document that is public facing.
DCPweb solves these challenges for you and turns a real problem into a genuine asset for your council that will be greatly valued and appreciated by your Council Team and community.
