Forum on NSW Planning White Paper
I spent last Monday at the excellent forum on the new planning system being proposed by the NSW Government. Quentin Dempster was the MC.
I congratulate the Minister, Brad Hazzard, for staying throughout the day particularly as the speakers were critical of his Governments proposals on the basis that they increase the risk of corruption, focus on growth at the expense of broader values, diminish environmental protection, and are a shocking attack on public participation rights.
I spoke on behalf of the NSW Nature Conservation Council during the Panel discussion. The Better Planning Network did a fantastic job of organising the day. For more information see:
