Development Assessment Panels (DAP)

A Development Assessment Panel (DAP) is an independent decision-making body which determines certain development applications in place of the Local Government authority. 

DAP panels are comprised of independent technical experts and elected local government representatives.

The City of Busselton is included in the Regional JDAP. Further information can be found on the Department of Planning Lands and Heritage website.
