Bayside Design Excellence Guidelines

Bayside Council’s Design Excellence Guidelines provide assessment criteria and procedures to support the design excellence clause in the Bayside Local Environment Plan (LEP) 2021. The LEP requires an Independent Design Review, or Architectural Design Competition must be held for some developments or sites before development consent may be granted.

Guideline procedures ensure that design competitions operate in a manner which is accountable, fair and efficient, and explains the competition process which includes tasks, responsibilities and timelines.
