The Development Control Unit (DCU) is a body of Shire staff that meet every six weeks to discuss and consider strategic developments and issues within the Shire of Manjimup. DCU is chaired by the Director of Development & Regulation and it comprises Officers, Managers and Directors from the Works and Services (Technical, Parks Operations) and Statutory Services (Planning, Building, Health) Departments of the organisation.
A Joint DCU meeting is held twice-yearly with the Department of Parks and Wildlife to discuss and consider strategic developments and issues common to both organisations.
The DCU is also used as a forum for prospective developers and business owners to gain an understanding of, and query Shire requirements, prior to the commencement of any major development within the Shire of Manjimup.
If you wish to have your proposed development considered by Shire officers at a DCU meeting, please contact the Shire's Statutory Planning Services on (08) 9771 7777 to organise a time and date to attend a meeting.
