Local Planning Panel

Local Planning Panel

In 2017, the Government introduced changes to make local planning panels (LPPs), mandatory for all councils in Greater Sydney and Wollongong.

The Local Planning Panel will be responsible for determining the following development applications:

  • Conflict of Interest – Development applications where Council, a Councillor, a member of staff involved in the DA process, or a member of Parliament or their relative is the owner or applicant
  • Contentious Development – Development applications that receive 10 or more objections from different households;
  • Departure from Development Standards – Development applications seeking to depart by more than 10% from a development standard
  • Sensitive development
    • Designated development
    • Development for residential flat buildings 4 storeys or over in height to which SEPP 65 Design Quality of Residential Apartment Development applies
    • Development involving the demolition of a heritage item
    • Development requiring a liquor licence, or for the purposes of sex services or restricted premises
    • Development applications for which the developer has offered to enter into a planning agreement
  • Modifications – Modification applications that meet the above criteria may also be referred to the Panel for determination
  • Planning Proposals – All planning proposals made after 1 June 2018 unless the General Manager determines it relates to correction of an error, is minor in nature or will not have any significant adverse impact on the environment or adjoining land
