Sydney Planning Panels were established in 2016 to determine regionally significant development applications (generally development with a capital investment value of more than $30M) within the Greater Sydney Region, other than City of Sydney. The 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.

 

The following panels operate across Greater Sydney:

  • Sydney Eastern City Planning Panel
  • Sydney Central City Planning Panel
  • Sydney Western City Planning Panel
  • Sydney North Planning Panel
  • Sydney South Planning Panel

The Planning Panels Secretariat undertakes monitoring of the performance of the Sydney 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).

 

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