On 1 March 2018, the NSW Government introduced requirements for all Councils in Greater Sydney and Wollongong (34 Councils) to establish an Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel (IHAP), known as a Local Planning Panel under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
The NSW Department of Planning and Environment engaged the University of Technology Sydney to monitor and evaluate the implementation of IHAPs over the first year of their operation.
As part of this evaluation, IPPG is conducting a community survey. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The survey will be open until 11:30pm on Tuesday 12 February 2019.
Your opinions and feedback will assist the Department to identify areas for improvement in the new IHAP system.
