TAKE ACTION: Make a submission in response to the Green Paper

posted 6 Sep 2012, 23:30 by Friends of Erskineville

The NSW Government has recently released its Green Paper outlining proposals for a new planning system in NSW.

The Government’s vision for planning in NSW presents a real threat for the environment and communities.

Developers have been quick to claim that the Green Paper delivers everything they have asked for:

The Urban Taskforce listed 10 key ideas for a better planning system in our submission to the planning review, and the Government’s Green Paper delivers on every one of these”.

        Urban Taskforce Media Release dated 15 July 2012

This process is not over yet. The Green Paper is open for public comment until 14 September  2012. The Government will then prepare a White Paper and draft legislation for further public consultation.

We must ensure that developers do not dominate this important reform process. We must maintain the pressure on Government to deliver a planning system that protects the environment and our communities.

TAKE ACTION NOW - Make a submission in response to the Green Paper.
