City sup­port for DAP changes

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE City of South Perth has wel­comed changes to the De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panels (DAP) process but the coun­cil wants to see more re­forms.

Among the changes an­nounced by the State Gov­ern­ment is an op­tion to opt-out of a DAP for de­vel­op­ments that will not sig­nif­i­cantly im­pact lo­cal amenity.

DAP agen­das will be pub­lished at least seven days be­fore a meet­ing, in­stead of the cur­rent five days. The City of South Perth kick-started a cam­paign for an in­de­pen­dent re­view of the DAP process af­ter putting for­ward a mo­tion dur­ing the WA Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment AGM in August.

Mayor Sue Do­herty said she sup­ported the pro­posed changes.

““The City is com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing the best plan­ning out­comes for our com­mu­nity,” she said.
