Regional Housing Flying Squad Program
The PDU, which is facilitating the program, has engaged with a panel of planning consultants to conduct assessments for DAs for regional housing on behalf of councils.
Councils will be asked to nominate DAs that deliver regional housing, through a formal EOI process, and nominations will be assessed against predetermined criteria by an evaluation panel. PDU will allocate consultants to selected DAs, and consultants will report directly to council staff while conducting the assessments.
Once assessment reports are completed to the satisfaction of council, council or the relevant regional planning panel will determine the DA. PDU will finalise payment to consultants for their services, before 30 June 2022.
