Scheme Amendments, Structure Plans and Local Development PLans

If your development application is of an estimated value between $2 million - $10 million, you may choose whether it is determined by the Development Assessment Panel (DAP) or the City of Karratha. This is called an ‘Optional Application.’ 

In some cases, developments must be determined by DAP. These are referred to as ‘Mandatory DAP Applications.’ This applies to developments where the estimated value is over $10 million, unless the development is a single house, or the construction of less than 10 grouped or multiple dwellings.
