By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 10 Sep 2020
An expert panel of renowned architects, urban designers, landscape planners and sustainability experts has been appointed to guide the design quality of the built environment across the Northern Beaches Council area.

Mayor Michael Regan said he was delighted to welcome the 13-member panel Chaired by urban design and sustainability expert Roderick Simpson.

Roderick Simpson was appointed the Environment Commissioner of the Greater Sydney Commission in 2015, and prior to this he was the Director of the Urban Design and Master of Urbanism programs at the University of Sydney.

“We are very privileged to have high-calibre specialists guiding Council’s vision for innovative urban design for its Northern Beaches Design and Sustainability Advisory Panel (DSAP),” Cr Regan said.

“The members have been selected for their vast experience and knowledge of urban design, architecture, landscape architecture, sustainability and SEPP 65.

“They are highly respected in their profession, with significant local and international experience.”

The new panel will review SEPP 65 applications, other residential development such as multi-unit housing, boarding houses, and seniors living developments as well as large commercial and industrial applications, and provide advice to Council.

“The panel will help council to recognise outstanding and innovative design, and provide practical means of understanding when improvements should be made,” Cr Regan said.
