The Better Planning Network have started a petition as they are concerned about the NSW Government Green Paper to replace the existing planning laws in NSW with a system that will:
• Remove the right of communities to have a say in development proposals and planning matters directly affecting their lives • Diminish the role of elected Councillors • Permit ‘Enterprise Zones’ with no planning controls to be imposed over entire suburbs or Local Government Areas • Not protect the environment or the heritage of the State
The Better Planning Network are requesting the Parliament of NSW to: • Urgently establish a multi-party Parliamentary Committee to fairly assess the proposals to amend the planning system and ensure the community’s rights of participation, consultation and appeal are not reduced • Ensure that the community consultation period on the Government’s final proposal (White Paper) is at least 6 months long
