Sam Haddad, director-general, NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure
I would like to thank the thousands of people in NSW who are helping to shape a new planning system for the state.
Building a new planning system requires community input and we have met more than 6,000 people in one of the most widespread consultation programs in the state’s history over the past two years.
Now we’re reading more than 4,500 submissions and using this feedback to prepare new planning legislation to be introduced into NSW Parliament. We will carefully consider all issues raised in finalising the legislation.
On behalf of the staff of the Department of Planning and Infrastructure I would like to say thank you for your time and input.
We are putting the community at the centre of the new planning system. The new system will allow NSW to grow while protecting the things we value, including the environment and our treasured heritage assets.
