Design guidelines for Merimbula Airport General Aviation Precinct

Have your say on the draft Development Control Plan (DCP) amendment for the private lease areas in the General Aviation Precinct at Merimbula Airport.

Council has resolved to exhibit draft amendments to Bega Valley Development Control Plan 2013 (DCP) to introduce design guidelines for private lease areas in the General Aviation Precinct at Merimbula Airport.

The objectives of the draft amendment to DCP are to ensure aircraft operations are safe and efficient and the form and character of development within the General Aviation Precinct at Merimbula Airport makes a positive contribution to the built environment. The amendment also encourages the design of contemporary, versatile and functional buildings that will establish a unified precinct identity and enhance Merimbula Airport as a gateway to the Sapphire Coast.

The draft amendment to the DCP includes provisions relating to:

  • airspace planning considerations
  • built form – including building setbacks and articulation, roof forms, car parking and loading docks
  • visual amenity – including colours, materials and finishes, landscaping, signage and lighting
  • fencing, energy efficiency, external service, wash down bays, rubbish and storage areas and Aboriginal archaeology.

Comments on the draft amendments are welcome during the exhibition period which runs until midnight, Sunday 2 April 2023.
