Greater Sydney Commission

Greater Sydney Commission

4 November 2015

Sydney planning seems to be more about developer opportunities and government coffers than long term public outcomes and I hope the new Greater Sydney Commission will lead to a more holistic and coordinated approach. The commission will draft district plans with councils and establish infrastructure priority lists for government. During debate I warned that we need more than colour coded maps that identify how many residential and commercial lots an area can fit – we need sites secured for infrastructure including rail corridors and schools, and social and affordable housing must be delivered across Sydney, not just the city fringes. 

My speech is HERE.

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
