Sydney Planning Panels (SPPs) were established on 21 November 2016, to determine 'regionally significant' development applications (DAs), generally development with a capital investment value (CIV) over $30 million, within the Greater Sydney Region, other than City of Sydney.

 

The Planning Panels also undertake rezoning reviews, through which proponents can request a review if a council decides not to support a rezoning request or doesn't make a determination within 90 days, act as the Planning Proposal Authority (PPA) when directed and provide advice on other planning and development matters.

 

Sydney Planning Panels operate across the Greater Sydney Region for each district:

  • Sydney Eastern City,
  • Sydney Central City,
  • Sydney Western City,
  • Sydney North and
  • Sydney South.

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

 

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

 

For information about the work of the SPPs, what projects are being considered and the planning proposals on exhibition, please visit the Planning Panels website.
