NSW Planning Bill delayed

Wednesday, 11th September 2013 (all day)

Location: NSW

This event is in the past.

The news this morning that the O’Farrell Government’s Planning Bill will not be introduced into Parliament this week is very good news and a credit to the strength of the community campaign.

The letter from Local Government NSW quoted in today’s SMH follows a campaign by the Community Councillors Network  across NSW urging Councils to write to Barry O’Farrell and LGNSW demanding the Bill be withdrawn.

Both the community based Better Planning Network and the NSW Nature Conservation Council each wrote to NSW MP’s this week also seeking the Bill be withdrawn.

The best result to come out of this would be for the Planning Minister to genuinely sit down with stakeholders and re-write the legislation.
