New panels to streamline land approvals

The property industry has hailed plans for expert panels to take responsibility for approving larger projects as the most important reform to the state's planning approvals process in many decades.

Excellent!!!!Phenomenal...ABOUT TIME!!!!....

If this move to 'centralise' local planning is successful then it will disenfranchise a large number of communities around the State. There is a sinister side to this proposal, undoubtedly being toasted by the ethically challenged side of the property development industry. I look forward to the battle boys.

If only now they could look at small end developments. The level of red tape when it comes to building a patio is ridiculous. If aunt mavis wants a 2m x 2m lean-too over her bedroom window, I would need a 40 page approval application and hundreds of dollars in fees..then it will take 10 weeks to be able to legally start..current system is beyond a joke for a patio business..

This Reform will help shires and councils like Serpentine Jarrahdale, Armadale, Joondalup and many others that are struggling with enoumous and rapid growth but don't have the human resources and planning mechanisms to get big developments through the system quick enough. This is a step forward in that it will help the system cope with future and present major infustructure and development approvals.
