Design Excellence Panel Policy

Consultation has concluded

Have your say on Council’s Design Excellence Panel Policy

Cumberland Council is committed to ensuring the highest standard of architectural and urban design is achieved for Cumberland’s built environment. This Design Excellence Panel Policy has been developed to outline the principles, purpose and scope of the Design Excellence Panel.

Design Excellence is the successful integration of key criteria – context and neighbourhood character, built form and scale, sustainability, landscape and public realm amenity, architectural expression, materials – through innovative design to contribute to building a sense of place.

Council is currently establishing a Design Excellence Panel who will consider and advise on pre-lodgement applications and development applications for the following development types within Cumberland:

  • any development proposal subject to the design excellence provisions of a Local Environmental Plan
  • any development proposal incorporating buildings with a height greater than 25m
  • any development proposal voluntarily referred to the Design Excellence Panel by an applicant for development of any kind
  • The operations of the Design Excellence Panel is guided by the Procedures document.
