About the Review

The Hon Rob Stokes, Minister for Planning and Public Spaces, has requested the Productivity Commissioner to conduct a review of the Independent Planning Commission and report back to the Minister by mid-December 2019. 

The Review will examine, among other things, whether it is in the public interest to maintain an Independent Planning Commission and the operations and processes of the Commission in the State’s planning framework.

The Review will be informed by assessment of similar bodies to the Independent Planning Commission in other common law jurisdictions and through consultation with key stakeholders representing industry, government and community.
