Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel
An Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel, known as an IHAP, is a panel of three independent expert members and a community member who assess development applications made to local Councils.
IHAPs will be mandatory for all councils in Sydney and for Wollongong City Council from March 1 2018. IHAPs are to be put in place so that the process of assessment and determination of development applications (DAs) of high value, corruption risk, sensitivity or strategic importance is transparent and accountable.
