Mosman Local Planning Panel (MLPP)

The NSW Government has made local planning panels mandatory for all councils in Greater Sydney.

The Mosman Local Planning Panel (MLPP) replaced the Mosman Development Assessment Panel (MDAP) on 1 March 2018.

The establishment of the MLPP means that development applications will be determined by either the MLPP, the Sydney North Planning Panel or by Council officers under delegation.

Ministerial directions issued under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 outline the referral criteria for development applications to be determined by a local planning panel. The directions also require that certain planning proposals are to be referred to the local planning panel for advice.

You can view the referral criteria, code of conduct and operational procedures on the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment website.
