STATE GOVERNMENT CONSIDERING DAP CHANGES

Posted in city of fremantle, development, state government, western australia by freoview on August 5, 2016

New WA Planning Minister Donna Faragher has indicated to Mosman Park council that the state government is willing to make changes to the controversial Development Assessment Panels(DAP) process.

The Minister told Mosman Park Mayor Ron Norris that the State would not abolish the DAP but were willing to consider making changes to the process.

The WA Government has also reassessed the increase of WA’s population and now believes the 3.5 million metropolitan ¬†population will be achieved by 2050 and not as previously estimated by 2031.

This could also mean the drastic infill targets set for councils can be reduced as the population increase will be delayed by 19 years.

I already reblogged Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt’s views on the DAP, but read his Thinking Allowed in this weekend’s Fremantle Herald!
