Non-standard Development Assessment Pathways
Joint Development Assessment Panel
The purpose of JDAPs is to determine the higher value development applications in place of Local Governments. If your project is valued more than $2 million, and is not excluded from this pathway, a panel of 3 industry experts and 2 local Councillors can determine your application in place of a full Council meeting or Delegated Officer.
