All multi-disciplinary applications under DART review starts this month
Our Corporate Planning Applications Group (CPAG) will fully change over to Development Applications Review Team (DART) on Jan. 17 when the South and Centre West geographic teams begin transitioning to the new operating model. In early November, the North team transitioned to DART and began reviewing their applications under the two-generalist model.
The names of two generalists added to the application will indicate it's being reviewed under the DART model.
The model is outcome-focused and designed to create closer alignment with how our customers operate. The two generalists will work with customers from a broader, multi-disciplinary perspective, integrating the knowledge and skillsets from planning and engineering to create great planning outcomes supported by innovative engineering solutions. This will streamline decision-making, result in better process and most importantly, enable better city-building.
The CPAG model existed for 24 years. It served our city well, and teams have worked hard to improve performance, especially meeting timeline commitments. However, to become even better, we needed to rethink the approvals model. DART will help enable success for years to come.
