Variations to development standards

The Byron Shire Local Environmental Plan 2014 (BLEP 2014) sets out development standards for each zone in the local government area.

Under the Byron Shire Local Environmental Plan 2014 Council is allowed some flexibility when applying planning controls to certain developments and maintains a register of these variations to then be submitted quarterly to the Department of Planning. It is important to note that these developments whilst they may not meet certain development standards are achieving strict planning objectives set by Council. 

The register of variations to development standards, applied to development applications within the Shire, is available for public view below.
