NSW Govt Planning Review: Need help with your submission?

Posted: September 7th, 2012 | Filed under: Announcements, Current Issues

The NSW Government’s Planning Review Green Paper is out for public consultation with comments, feedback and submissions due by 14 September 2012.

There are significant changes being proposed for our NSW planning system, some if they become law, may mean you may not find out about the development next door until the bulldozers arrives!

It is important that you make yourself aware of the proposed changes, and if you have concerns or suggestions to let the NSW Government know.

You can down load the Green Paper, make a submission, provide feedback or be involved in an online forum by going to http://haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au/newplanningsystem.

Helpful websites and links to background information and guides relating to public response to the  Green Paper include:
