Local Planning Panel (LPP)

About

The NSW Government has introduced changes to make local planning panels (LPPs), mandatory for all councils in Greater Sydney and Wollongong.

The Local Planning Panel assess development applications (DA’s) which involve:

  • (i) A potential conflict of interest (including development where the applicant or land owner is that Council, Councillor, Council planning staff member or member or parliament) and/or
  • (ii) Contentious development that has received more than 10 unique submissions and/or
  • (iii) Variations to a development standard imposed by an environmental planning instrument by more than 10% and/or
  • (iv) Sensitive development (a) Designated development (b) Development to which State Environment Planning Policy No 65 - Design Quality of Residential Apartment Development applies and is 4 or more storeys in height (c) Development involving the demolition of a heritage item (d) Development for licenced premises (e) Development for the purpose of sex services premises and restricted premises (f) Development applications for which the developer has offered to enter into a planning agreement.

The development applications referred to will only be considered by the LPP and Council in circumstances where the Sydney Central City Planning Panel is not the determining authority.

After the panel has considered submissions made by interested parties, the panel will make a determination on the application.
