Joint regional planning panels provide independent, merit-based decision making on regionally significant development. Applications for regionally significant development are notified and assessed by a local council and then determined by the relevant regional panel.
 
Regional panels may also have a role in planning proposals, where the Minister for Planning and Infrastructure has appointed the regional panel to act as the relevant planning authority (RPA) or asked the regional panel to undertake a pre or post Gateway review.
