The Better Planning Network believes that NSW needs a fundamentally different planning system from the one that is currently operating. A system that is driven by Ecologically Sustainable Development principles and one that is fairer, more transparent and less open to corruption.
This is why the BPN, together with a number of other groups including the National Trust (NSW), Shelter NSW, Nature Conservation Council of NSW, National Parks Association of NSW, Inner Sydney Voice and the Total Environment Centre, have developed Planning for People: A Community Charter for Good Planning in NSW.
In the lead up to the State elections on 23 March, BPN is calling on you to formally endorse this Charter.
Every time an individual endorses the Charter, emails are automatically generated to key politicians.
If thousands of people endorse the Charter in coming weeks, it will ensure that the need for changes to our planning system is at the forefront of the mind of all political parties and/or independents elected to Parliament.
BPN hopes that you will endorse the Charter and that you will also encourage your networks and group members to do the same.
If you are Facebook user, you can please share this post: it is pinned to the top of the BPN Facebook page.
Many thanks for your support.
