Individuals who best demonstrate the following will be recommended for appointment:

  • An interest and passion for balanced community development;
  • A desire to share knowledge and experience in a range of subjects relevant to planning and development (e.g. housing, agriculture, construction, parks, environment, youth, seniors, business, geography, engineering, education, arts and culture etc.).

Please note that 2/3 of the members of an APC must be residents of the Electoral Area. Submit an application for the Advisory Planning Commission Expression of Interest.
