Government’s New Planning Proposals announced July 2012.

These can be viewed on the website for the Department of Planning and Community Development, DPCD website.

Some of the proposals at first reading suggest some improvements but the whole proposal is extremely complex and the “devil is in the detail”. The Orrong Group Committee is preparing a submission and we will put this on the web.

The whole process is being unnecessarily hurried and the deadline for submissions is 28 September – Not enough time given that these are the biggest changes to our planning scheme for some time.  We have sent two letters to the Minister asking for an extension of time but only one week has been given.

We need to be clear on the many proposals such as :- how our rights to lodge objections and appeal rights are protected. At this point we still have to decide our views on the whole proposal

Please check the DPCD website as above and study the proposals. We would welcome your views so let us know. Send to:-
