Joint Regional Planning Panels were established on 1 July 2009 to strengthen decision making on regionally significant development applications (DAs) and certain other planning matters.

 

Joint Regional Planning Panels operate in the following regions:

  • Hunter and Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel
  • Northern Joint Regional Planning Panel
  • Southern Joint Regional Planning Panel
  • Western Joint Regional Planning Panel

 

For more information about the work of the Joint Regional Planning Panels or to review current proposals on exhibition please go to the Planning Panels website.

 

The Planning Panels Secretariat undertakes monitoring of the performance of the Joint Regional Planning Panels and whether local councils meet reporting time frames to the Panels.

 

The quarterly dashboard illustrates some of the key metrics of the Panels – housing approvals, performance (timeliness of determinations), capital investment value of approvals and gross assessment time by local councils (lodgement through to reporting to the Panel).
