What is SDAPP?
This lesson is an overview of what you need to know about the Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP) and why Councils implement SDAPP into planning.
Click here if you would like to make contact with the Council Alliance for a Sustainable Built Environment (CASBE). CASBE is the association of Victorian councils committed to the creation of a sustainable built environment within and beyond their municipalities.
CASBE provides a forum:
- for the exchange of information, innovation and best practice in Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) to effectively represent and advocate the collective views of the member councils
- for strengthening partnerships between member councils, relevant agencies and industry
- to provide leadership in ESD policy and practice.
CASBE's focus is on applying Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) principles to the built environment through the statutory planning system. This coordinated program of formal and consistent measures is called the Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP) framework. CASBE operates under the auspices of the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV).
While CASBE's role is primarily related to the SDAPP framework, the alliance also helps councils incorporate ecologically sustainable development into council-managed buildings and capital works projects.
CASBE member councils include: Banyule City Council, Bass Coast Shire Council, Brimbank City Council, Darebin City Council, Greater Bendigo City Council, Greater Dandenong City Council, Hobsons Bay City Council, Hume City Council, Kingston City Council, Knox City Council, Manningham City Council, Maribrynong City Council, Maroondah City Council, Monash City Council, Moonee Valley City Council, Moreland City Council, Port Phillip City Council, Stonnington City Council, Strathbogie Shire Council, Whitehorse City Council, Whittlesea City Council, Wyndham City Council, Yarra City Council.
