What is DAP?

A Development Assessment Panel (DAP) is an independent decision-making body comprised of technical experts and elected local government representatives.

Under the Planning & Development (Development Assessment Panels) Regulations 2011 (DAP Regulations), each DAP will determine certain development applications as if they were the responsible authority. DAP's are only decision-making bodies.

Local government are responsible for undertaking an assessment of the proposal, including any public advertising if required, and the preparation of a report for the DAP's consideration.

The Shire of Ravensthorpe is currently represented by Cr Graham Richardson and Cr Robert Miloseski on the Development Assessment Panel.
