Welcome to Western Australia's Development Assessment Panels website.
A key component of planning reform in Western Australia, Development Assessment Panels (DAPs) are intended to enhance planning expertise in decision making by improving the balance between technical advice and local knowledge.
Fifteen DAPs will be established by the Minister of Planning on 1 July 2011. Each DAP consists of five panel members, three being specialist members and two local government councillors.
For information about how DAPs operate, membership, and development application types please select from the menu to the left. More detailed information for both DAP members and the general public will be posted here in mid-2011.
To view DAP regional boundaries click on the the map below, or select a region from the list.

DAPs Secretariat and the Department of Planning making continuous improvements to the Development
Assessment Panels (DAP) Website.
