When considering a submission from the applicant/proponent, Council staff provides the panel with a report on the proposal against the nine design principles, as outlined in the Apartment Design Guide, and Council's planning controls.
The applicant/proponent is allowed 20 minutes to present the development to the panel. Additional time is allocated for discussion of the proposal between the panel and the applicant/proponent. A Council development planner will be present to clarify any issues raised by the panel and/or the applicant/proponent.
The panel endeavours to undertake a site inspection where possible before this meeting occurs.
The panel consults independently of the applicant/proponent to formulate recommendations against the nine design principles.
The panel's recommendations will include:
- issues discussed at the meeting; and
- additional issues identified during the panel's independent deliberations.
The written recommendations are provided within 14 days of the meeting.
