Design Review Panel
Council operates a design review panel (DRP) to provide independent expert advice on the design quality of certain development proposals. The DRP assists Council by bringing high quality design expertise to this task in a manner that adds value for both the applicant and Council, with the ultimate aim being to deliver high-quality built environments, design excellence and the efficient assessment of development applications (DAs). The DRP considers a range of development proposals and Council’s preference is that this occurs at pre-DA advice stage when the time and cost of incorporating valuable ideas from the panel can be minimised.
For further information on the DRP refer to the Design Review Panel Terms of Reference and Operational Procedures.
