Local government review in NSW

A group of volunteers constituting the NSW Branch’s “Planning Working Group” has today submitted on the proposed reform of the NSW Planning System.

Key points of the submission include:

  • highlighting the many and varied values of the NSW coastal zone
  • the need for additional Objects and new Principles within the legislation to address key issues such as ESD, public access and natural hazards
  • a new Coastal Planing Policy
  • integration with the Coastal Protection Act 1979 (or successor)
  • and better transparency and accountability.
