Local Planning Panel

From March 2018, the NSW Government introduced legislation requiring most Council's to establish Local Planning Panels.

A Local Planning Panel, also known as an Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel (IHAP), is a panel of three independent expert members and a community member who undertake the following functions:

  • assess and determine certain development applications, and
  • provide advice to Council on Planning Proposals (from 1 June 2018)

Applications currently under assessment
