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

 

Following updates to the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 in 2018, JRPPs were renamed as Regional Planning Panels (RPPs).

 

Regional Planning Panels operate in the following regions:

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

The Planning Panels Secretariat undertakes monitoring of the performance of the RPPs 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 RPPs, the projects being considered and the proposals on exhibition please visit the Department's Planning Panels website.
