Code of Conduct
While independent of the Government, SCAP is supported in its role by the Planning and Land Use Services division of the Attorney-General's Department. Staff provide professional research and advice to the SCAP regarding applications and other matters. The SCAP is also able to delegate extensive administrative and decision making responsibility to certain planning officers of the Department.
