Changes to Local Planning Panels
The NSW Government is making changes to the way Local Planning Panels work to make them more efficient and to improve the assessment and determination times of development applications.
These changes are being made as part of the Planning Acceleration Program to support the state’s immediate and long-term economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
The changes, commenced from 1 August 2020, will speed up panel determinations by:
- reducing the need to conduct public panel meetings for non-contentious matters by applying a ‘10-or-more’ objection trigger for public meetings
- reducing the amount of modifications going to panels
- obliging panel chairs to more actively manage development applications (DAs) coming to the panels to reduce panel deferrals and assessment timeframes
- allowing chairs to bring forward determination on DAs that are experiencing unreasonable delays of over 180 days from lodgement
- introducing panel performance measures.
Further details about the changes and Frequently Asked Questions are available in this information sheet.
The public meeting will consider the applications with 10 or more unique objections only and will commence at 1pm on the day via Microsoft Teams. Other applications referred to the Panel will be considered through the electronic circulation of papers.
