The Design Review Panel (DRP) has been formed to ensure future developments preserve the character of the local area, whilst delivering high quality built form.
The DRP consists of professional architects who will give impartial architectural and design advice on major development applications to ensure developments are well designed and will positively enhance the streetscapes of the City.
The particular focus of the panel will be planning applications for buildings of three or more storeys located within activity centre zones, special control areas, mixed-use zones, business zones and medium to high density residential zones.
The DRP will give advice on key aspects of the development, including the overall design quality and functionality of the building, how well the development fits within its context and surroundings, and whether or not the building has the potential to form a lasting contribution to the sense of place and identity of the City of Bayswater.
Applicants are encouraged to consult with the panel during the early planning phase of their proposal. A fee of $2,500 is payable upon lodgement.
Referrals to the panel can be made by the CEO, Director of Community and Development, Council or the Planning and Development Services Committee.

- Philip Gresley - Chairperson
