Development Assessment Panel

A Development Assessment Panel (DAP) is an independent decision-making body comprised of technical experts and elected local government representatives. Joint Development Assessment Panels (JDAPs) are established to service two or more local governments.

What does DAP do?

Under the DAP regulations, each DAP will determine certain development applications as if they were the responsible authority.  For example, if a DAP application is submitted to the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale the application will be assessed against the Shire's town planning scheme, relevant planning policies and Metropolitan Regional Scheme (MRS) as per any other application submitted to that authority.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is a part of the Metropolitan East JDAP which covers the following areas:

  • Serpentine Jarrahdale
  • Armadale
  • Gosnells
  • Kalamunda
  • Mundaring
  • Swan
