With the technical and administrative support of a Secretariat consisting of the CEO of Planning Authority, Planning Authority Consultant, the Planning Authority Analyst and Senior Planning Officer (Secretary to the Board), Board members’ mandates are to review and prepare construction development guidelines and land use related policies and guidelines for approval, as well as decide on planning applications approving different types of physical use of land which involve subdivisions, construction of buildings and infrastructure development.

Planning Authority Board Members are also required to conduct site visits, receive and review recommendations from the three Committees; Sub-committee, Minor Works Committee and Utilities Committee and decide on applications and other related cases.
