Development policies and processes
Our policies and processes provide a framework for planning, building and development assessment.
Building Fire Safety Committee (BFSC)
The Building Fire Safety Committee (BFSC) inspects existing commercial premises to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and our Building Fire Safety Policy. The Building Fire Safety Committee also has its own Terms of Reference.
Where necessary, the BFSC requires the upgrade of existing buildings.
Barossa Assessment Panel
The role of the Barossa Assessment Panel (BAP) is to make decisions on development applications presented by Council planning staff. BAP have their own Barossa Assessment Panel Terms of Reference and Barossa Assessment Panel Operating and Meeting Procedures, and make decisions independently from Council.
