Development Approval ensures works are legal, and prevents any unreasonable negative impacts for neighbours. Failure to comply can result in fines or other penalties.
Please note: Building Permits are administered by building services and Planning Approval must be obtained before lodging a Building Permit application.
Development Assessment Panels
Under the Planning and Development Act 2005 major Development Applications received by the Town can be determined by a Metropolitan West Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP). JDAP assessment is based on the cost of development as follows:
Where an application is determined by a DAP the Town does not issue a separate Development Approval and the DAP can approve or refuse the development in accordance with the Town’s Planning Scheme and other relevant legislation and policies.
Please click here for the DAP Minutes and Agendas where the details of the applications are located.
