ICAC Investigation Operation Dasha

ICAC Investigation Operation Dasha

In March 2021, the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption released its report on Operation Dasha, which investigated allegations of corrupt conduct concerning the former Canterbury City Council.

This investigation examined the conduct of public officials at the council, including former councillors, the former general manager, and the former director of city planning. The allegations were that these individuals dishonestly and/or partially exercised their official functions in relation to planning proposals and/or applications in the Canterbury City Council local area.

The ICAC also investigated the circumstances surrounding the appointment of the director of city planning.
