The Property Council of Australia has provided feedback on the Design Guide for Multi-Residential Developments.

In response to the Design Guide, the Property Council has made the following recommendations: 

  • The Design Guide should provide best practice design advice and good examples to guide future residential multi-unit development and ensure favorable consideration by a DAC process and ultimately a Design Assessment Panel (DAP). The process should not be so rigid that every DA must adhere to the criteria outlined in the design guide
  • Application of the Design guide should rest with a revised Design Advisory Committee (DAC)
