As a key component of planning reform in Western Australia, Development Assessment Panels (DAPs) are intended to enhance planning expertise in decision making by improving the balance between technical advice and local knowledge.
The Action Plan for Planning Reform has been released, which outlines the State Government’s vision and agenda for creating a more contemporary planning system. The Action Plan includes structural and procedural changes to the DAP system.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
