Interim development control orders
The minister for planning may make an interim development control order (IDCO) to:
- temporarily override or suspend development provisions or
- introduce controls in relation to a piece of land.
An IDCO can only be in place for a maximum of two years.
This may be done to allow more investigation into an issue or a trial of new rules before a final decision is made.
The consent authority must take into account any IDCO applicable to the land when considering the development proposal.
The table below lists IDCOs currently in force or recently expired.
|IDCO number||Description||Date in force|
|IDCO 26||This order permits development of a multiple dwelling without consent in a major remote town only if it complies with specific requirements.||13 November 2019 - 13 November 2020|
|IDCO 29||This order provides interim transitional provisions for business and promotional signs, as these controls have been removed from the NT Planning Scheme 2020.||5 August 2020 - 5 August 2022|
|IDCO 30||This order provides interim transitional provisions for domestic livestock, as these controls have been removed from the NT Planning Scheme 2020.||5 August 2020 - 5 August 2022|
