The Lane Cove Local Planning Panel (LCLPP) is a panel of appropriately qualified people independent of Council charged with determining a range of development applications and providing advice on Planning Proposals on behalf of Council (based on mandatory referral criteria).
Each Panel meeting includes four members comprised of the permanent chairperson, a rotating community member and two members who represent each of the expert fields of: architecture, urban design or planning and the environment.
The Panel meeting format consists of an on-site inspection followed by a public meeting, with an open forum for interested persons and groups to hear submissions about the proposal.
Meetings are webcast with speakers to attend in-person. In the event that meetings are required to be held via audio visual link community members will be able to register to speak via the online link.
To enable the Chairperson to accommodate all people wishing to address the Panel, speakers are required to register with the Secretariat prior to the meeting. Community members will have 3 minutes to address the panel and the representative of a community organisation or association 10 minutes.
A closed panel session is then held for the panel to deliberate before announcing the determination to the public. The determination includes a written response from the Panel which will be uploaded to Council’s website outlining the reasons for the decision.
The Panel meets as required generally on the first Tuesday of the month. The public meeting commencing at 5:00pm will be held at Council Chambers, 48 Longueville Road, Lane Cove.
