Joint Regional Planning Panel – Council Nomination
I am writing to you in response to your letter of 11 May 2009 requesting that Council nominate two (2) member for the proposes Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP). Council at its meeting on 22 June resolved that it will not nominate members to the JRPP until such time as guidelines and codes of conduct are made available to Council and issues relating to conflicts of interest have been resolved.
Council also request that the Minister delay the implementation of the JRPP until Council has adequate time to consider the implications of these codes and to obtain and consider legal advice on the potential for conflicts of interest.
Council also wishes to draw to
your attention that Parramatta City Council has a Central Parramatta Planning Committee and requests that

I would request your urgent consideration of the Council’s request. Please contact me on 9806 5326 if you need any further information.
