Dear Resident
You are invited you to a Community Meeting on NSW Planning Reform  to be held at 7:30pm, Tuesday, 23 October, 2012 at Redfern Town Hall.
The meeting is being organised by a number of Sydney residents groups in conjunction with the Better Planning Network (BPN). The Better Planning Network was established in response to the changes proposed in the State Government Planning Green paper and is supported by over 50 groups across the state. The groups supporting this forum include 2011 Residents’ Association Inc, Alexandria Residents Action Group, Chippendale Residents Interest Group, Darlinghurst Residents Action Group, Friends of Erskineville, REDWATCH and Pyrmont Action Inc.
The Lord Mayor was invited to participate but she is unable to attend and has asked Councillor John Mant to represent her. We have requested a presentation of the Councils position. Councillors and others concerned with these issues have also been invited to attend.
The evening will include a brief presentation from the Nature Conservation Council who have been running workshops on the Green paper; a report back on the white paper forum held by the Planning Minister last week; hopefully a Council presentation and a panel forum. Around 8.30pm we will be joined by Sydney by-election candidates who have asked to also present their views on the proposed changes.
Residents are invited to attend the community meeting and to join in the discussion of this important issue.
Friends of Erskineville
