Willoughby Local Planning Panel Update
Last modified on 01 August 2020
As of 1 August 2020, the NSW Government has made changes to the way Local Planning Panels work to make them more efficient and to improve the assessment and determination times of development applications.
The Panel will now only hold a public meeting where the development application has attracted 10 or more unique submissions (one per household) by way of objection. Interested parties who wish to address this WLPP meeting should register their interest. Once registered, you will be provided with a link and code to enable you to join the public teleconference.
All other matters will be determined by the Panel by electronic means.
If an application is to be determined electronically, the Panel will still be required to:
- consider a Council staff assessment report that addresses any issues raised during public exhibition
- have regard to written submissions
- demonstrate how community views were taken into account
- provide reasons for the decision
