From Thursday, 1 March 2018 certain development and other planning applications will be sent to the City of Canada Bay Local Planning Panel (CBLPP) for determination. The LPP is a panel of experts and community members who are independent of Council.
Further information about the Panel and the types of applications that will need to be determined by the Panel can be found in the Fact Sheet. The pecuniary interest declarations of each Panel Member can be found here.
Any application required to be determined by the Panel will be assessed within the same legislative process as is currently required for all applications under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. Applicants do not need to do anything different to the current application process. Council staff will refer any affected application to the Panel in accordance with our operational procedures for these Panels.
The Panel meetings are open to the general public as is the case with Council meetings. If you are an applicant/owner of a property for which a development or other planning related application is being submitted to the LPP for determination, or a person/company acting on behalf of an applicant, or you have made a submission on the application, you will be notified of the Panel meeting date on which the application is to be considered. The notification letter will include details on how to register to address the Panel meeting prior to the application being determined.
The agenda and the minutes for Panel meetings can be found in LPP Agendas and Minutes.
