Development Assessment Panels (DAPs) are independent decision making bodies comprising a mix of technical experts and elected local government representatives. DAPs are intended to enhance planning expertise in decision making by improving the balance between technical advice and local knowledge.

The purpose of the DAPs is to determine development applications in the place of local governments and the Western Australian Planning Commission, where a financial value threshold is reached.
