Expression of Interest for Panel Members

In the context of Greater Sydney, Burwood has become a vibrant destination with a unique combination of residential garden neighbourhoods and progressive mixed use precincts, which service a diverse and active community that values both the vibrancy of our town centres and history of the area.

The Burwood Design Review Panel (BDRP) has been established to examine, evaluate and comment on the design aspects of development applications referred to the BDRP. This is taking into account the Design Excellence Clause contained in section 6.5 of the Burwood Local Environmental Plan.

This is to ensure that an independent design review is completed and that high quality design outcomes would be achieved by new development within the Burwood LGA. It is also recognising the expected growth and expansion of Burwood and status of the Burwood Town Centre as a strategic centre.

 

Purpose of BDRP

The BDRP will provide independent, expert and pragmatic advice on design quality matters in relation to development and pre-development applications.

The role of the panel is advisory only. It has no delegated authority or power under any other function to determine any development application.

However, recommendations or comments provided in response to the development application presented to the BDRP will be used to inform the assessment process.

The types of applications that will be referred to the BDRP will include most new development within the Burwood or Strathfield Town Centres over 3 stories or other proposals which are likely to have a higher profile status by virtue of project scale, height or other locational factors.

A draft Terms of Reference is attached.
