The Council Assessment Panel (CAP) is a committee that considers and makes decisions regarding development applications on behalf of Council. The CAP is one of the authorities that can make impartial and transparent development assessment decisions based on Wattle Range Council’s Development Plan, in accordance with relevant laws (e.g. Development Act and Planning, Development & Infrastructure Act). Council's Planning Officers refer relevant applications to the CAP for consideration.
A formal meeting schedule has not been adopted and meetings are held as required.
