Community Member Positions on Planning Panels - Expressions of Interest

Do you want to contribute to planning for your community?IHAP

Independent Hearing Assessment Panels (IHAPs) and the Sydney North Planning Panel (SNPP) are being established to assess and determine development applications of high value, corruption risk, sensitivity or strategic importance.  The Panels may also provide advice on planning proposals and will comprise technical experts and local community representatives appointed by both the State Government and local councils.

Council is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from the community to fill local member positions on Council’s IHAP and two local member positions (comprised of one ‘expert’ and one ‘non-expert’ member) on the SNPP.  Mayors, Councillors, property developers and real estate agents are ineligible to be panel members.  All the positions are being offered for a period of up to 3 years.
