Subject: [NCC Members] NSW Planning Review -- Consultation schedule now available

Dear NCC Members,

The community consultation schedule for the NSW Planning Review has now been announced, and is available online at: www.planningreview.nsw.gov.au/Consultat ... fault.aspx.

The NSW Government has established an independent panel to review the NSW planning system, including the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, and make recommendations for reform. This process has very significant implications for local and regional environmental outcomes, and we strongly recommend that you get involved, by attending a public consultation meeting in your area.

The Co-Chairs of the review will be travelling throughout the state from September to November, attending public meetings across NSW. According to the planning review website: "The consultation process will be an opportunity for individuals, interested community groups, local councils and their staff, property developers and anyone else who has an interest in the planning system to say what they think should be the broad objectives for the new system".

For your interest, I have attached a short briefing note on opportunities for improving environmental outcomes from the planning process. I have also included a list of useful publications and resources below for your reference.

Best wishes,
