Local Planning Panel

The NSW Government has made local planning panels mandatory for all Councils in the Greater Sydney region and Wollongong City Council. From 1 March 2018 these Panels will be now known as Local Planning Panels (LPP). The Panels have been put in place so that the process of assessment and determination of development applications is transparent and accountable.

The Local Planning Panel will continue to meet once a month, or more often if required, and consider planning proposals and/or development applications where the applicant or owner is the Council or a member of staff, or contentious applications as outlined in the Charter and Guidelines.

To undertake its determination and review function of Development Applications and consideration/recommendations of Planning Proposals, Georges River Council has appointed two Local Panning Panels. A Determination Panel and a Review Panel, each comprising of four members being as:

  • The Chair – with expertise in law,
  • Two professionals with expertise in urban design, urban planning or other related field, and
  • One community representative selected from a pool of five (being one from each Ward within the Georges River Local Government Area).

Council has selected LPP members from a pool managed by the Department of Planning and Environment. They are required to be an expert in one or more of the following areas: planning, architecture, heritage, the environment, urban design, economics, traffic and transport, law, engineering, tourism or government and public administration. The Chair (selected by the Minister) is required to have expertise in law or government and public administration. The community member is to be selected by Council and is to represent the geographical area within the LGA of the proposed development. Councillors and mayors will not be permitted to be on the panels in their local government area.

Georges River Local Planning Panel Members are as follows:
 

Chairs / Alternate Chairs Determination Panel Members Review Panel Members Community Members
Adam Seton Michael Leavey Milan Marecic Cameron Jones
Paul Vergotis Juliet Grant Jason Perica Erin Sellers
Sue Francis John Brockhoff Helen Mulcahy George Vardas

Electronic Agendas

Process
In some instances the LPP Chair may determine that it is unnecessary to hold a meeting in public to consider a particular application and determine the matter electronically. Circumstances where a public meeting may not be required includes;
 
  • Where the assessment report recommends approval and there are no submission by way of objection, or
  • Where the IHAP/LPP has considered the matter at a public meeting and deferred its decision to request specific additional information from an applicant or Council (such as amended drawings). In this case, an electronic meeting should only occur if Council, after having accepted the amended drawings, has decided that re-exhibition of the amended drawings is not required).
