Town Planning Scheme No. 2 - Revoked from 28 February 2018
Local governments are required to maintain a Local Planning Scheme. The Local Planning Scheme consists of a Scheme Text and Map. The text provides the statutory guidance for development, including development provisions, permitted uses and compliance matters. The map provides the zonings for the land, which in turn indicate the type of uses that may be possible in each particular area. The current Local Planning Scheme is Town Planning Scheme No. 2.

Local Planning Policies
The Town's suite of Local Planning Policies will be revoked and replaced with new policies from 28 February 2018.
The Town Planning Scheme No. 2 is supported by a number of Local Planning Policies which guide decision-making and implementation of the Scheme. Policies are generally guidelines that provide transparency to the general public and the Town’s staff on how discretion will be exercised over certain matters within the Scheme area of the Town of Mosman Park.
The policies do not bind the Town in making a decision contrary to a Policy and do not hinder the Town from otherwise considering the merits of each application. Nevertheless, in considering a development application for planning approval, the Town must still have due regard to all relevant Local Planning Policies.
