The Greater Sydney Commission (GSC) is now responsible for metropolitan planning, determining regionally significant development applications and rezoning proposals that will override existing Local Environment Plans info about the Greater Sydney Commission.
The draft District Plans will be released in November. So far, there has been no consultation with local community groups. Given the powers of the Commission and the intense pressure for development, the community needs a voice.
Lane Cove Bushland and Conservation Society has coordinated input from community organisations across the Northern Region to ensure communities are part of the planning process. Hunters Hill Trust is one of 32 community organisations that endorsed a letter to the Chief Commissioner, Lucy Hughes Turnbull, AO.
The community needs details, and a voice
Prof Rod Simpson, the Environment Commissioner and Dr Lucy Gearing, Commissioner for the Northern Region have agreed to speak at a community meeting and answer questions from the community.
When: 7:00- 9:00 pm August 9th
Where: The Cove Room, Lane Cove Council offices, 48 Longueville Road, Lane Cove
