DAP Affected: Swan Valley

The DAP/SAT system can be used to approve any development in Western Australia, even a X use (not permitted) under the Local Planning Scheme.

Here’s an example of a DAP RAR in the Swan area where the two Swan Councillors put up the council recommendation for refusal of an X use development application.  The three “expert” panel members voted against the council recommendation and approved the X use development using their majority vote.

The experts voted against Swan Council to refuse.

DAP affected communities believe the DAP approval system is unaccountable for its decisions and therefore should be scrapped in favour of system that upholds the rules and policies of a local government.
