The community has been critical in helping shape the work of the Greater Sydney Commission since it was established. Earlier this year we brought together more than 100 community members for a series of co-design workshops to understand how we can best engage with the community in planning for Greater Sydney’s future. Feedback and ideas from these workshops have been used to shape our draft Community Participation Plan (CPP). All planning authorities across NSW are now required to prepare a CPP. The CPP will replace our Engagement Strategy, reaffirming our commitment to be a listening organisation and guiding our strong collaborative approach. It outlines the tools we will use, values we will embrace and opportunities we will provide for the community to be involved in the work of the Commission.
The GSC draft Community Participation Plan (CPP) is now on public exhibition, from 27 September to 12 November 2019. The GSC is looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the draft and your ideas for how they can include more people in strategic planning for Greater Sydney’s future. You can read the draft and share your feedback here.
After the exhibition period, the final CPP will be published on 1 December 2019 on both the Commission’s website and the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s Planning Portal.
