Welcome to DCPweb

The digital Development Control Plan web portal.

The Problem

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.
