Darkinjung Delivery  DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Darkinjung is one of 120 Local Aboriginal Land Councils (LALCs) in NSW. It is the largest non-government landholder on the Central Coast.

In February 2019,  a set of pioneering changes to planning laws to enable Darkinjung to better achieve its aspirations for its land.

The Darkinjung Development Delivery Plan was approved by the Minister for Planning on 16 December 2022 under the provisions of the State Environmental Planning Policy (Planning Systems) 2021 (Chapter 3 Aboriginal land).

The delivery plan applies to 31 sites (consisting of 94 lots) in the Central Coast local government area. It considers the high-level opportunities and constraints associated with future development of the 31 sites. It supersedes the interim DDP from 2019.
