Feedback will be considered when reviewing planning and development controls that apply to your town so that future development meets the community’s expectations. Council ask on their website: What do you most appreciate about your town? Tell us about the built and natural features in Mystery Bay, Congo and Mogo you think make it special or unique. There could be things you think should be protected. You can tell us about what gives the area character and give us examples of where you see this character. What do you think could be improved in your town? Tell us about what you see as opportunities to improve. Perhaps you have seen improvements in other places you would like to also see in Mystery Bay, Congo and Mogo. Places can change over time, for example building designs change, new houses might be built on vacant land or the materials people choose to build might change.What do you want Mystery Bay, Congo and Mogo to look like in the future?

The DCP review could result in proposed changes to DCPs, Council Codes or the LEP. If changes are proposed to DCPs or the LEP, they will be publicly exhibited and the community will have the opportunity to comment on them. The community can influence planning controls, however Council decides what is adopted. For More information on the DCPs and the community engagement process visit this website
