The Greater Sydney Commission is now responsible for metropolitan planning.
What does this mean actually? For one thing it can override LEPs and affect rezonings. Combined with council amalgamations, local community groups will have less and less opportunity to influence what development occurs in their area.
Community organisations (including PNHA ) have submitted a request for consultation prior to the release of the GSC draft plan in November.
Lane Cove Bushland and Conservation Society invite you to join in a discussion concerning the role of GSC with Rod Simpson, the Commissioner for the Environment. The Forum will be on Tuesday August 9, 7-9pm in The Cove Room, Lane Cove Council Offices, 48 Longeuville Rd, Lane Cove, on corner of Epping Highway and Longeuville Rd. Parking available.For more information and to RSVP contact Corinne Fisher, cmfisher@tpg.com.au or Sue Ingham on sue.ingham@webtide.com.au
