The NSW Government is building a planning system focused on sustainable growth to deliver the jobs and houses we need to support our growing cities and regions.
In September 2012 Gary White, MacroPlan’s Strategic Planning Advisor — Major Projects, was appointed as an expert advisor to the NSW Government to assist in the development of the White Paper in association with his review of the States Planning Legislation.
The new planning system will make NSW more competitive by improving decision making, providing more certainty and making it more cost effective to do business in the state. It will focus on people and communities, rather than processes. Communities will have a say in shaping their local area by helping to develop the long-term strategic plans that will set the ground rules for development.
On Tuesday 16 April, the NSW Government released the White Paper — A new planning system for NSW. Click here to provide feedback on the White Paper.
