Free Event – “Where will Planning be after 26 March”
David Broyd, Group Manager, Sustainable Planning Port Stephens Council
Date: Wednesday 16 March
Time: 6.00m – 8.00pm
Venue: Hugh Dixon Theatre (GO3), Ground Floor, AGSM Building, Gate 11, Botany Street, University of NSW
A FREE Planning seminar hosted by UNSW Built Environment City Futures Research Centre will be held on Wednesday the 16th of March. The Lecture will be given by David Broyd, Group Manager, Sustainable Planning Port Stephens Council.
In this special seminar, one of New South Wales’s most experienced planners, David Broyd, presents his thoughts about the future of the planning system in NSW.
Based on his recent paper “Where to Planning?”, David will outline a set of key reforms that might rekindle the public’s trust in and the effectiveness of the NSW planning system.
He will be joined on the platform by a guest panel of senior planners and commentators, including:
Malcolm Ryan - Director of Planning and Development Services at Warringah Council
Tony MacNamara – Director of Planning at Canada Bay Council and NSW President of the Planning Institute of Australia
John McInerney - Councillor, City of Sydney
Ken Morrison – Chief Operating Officer, Property Council of Australia
David’s view is that planning in NSW needs a comprehensive re-think and that the NSW Planning system has been subject to excessive, piecemeal, ad-hoc and politically expedient changes that have made it a system in need of comprehensive reform and new directions. He therefore proposes a range of proposals for the incoming State Government to achieve that comprehensive reform of planning in NSW.
David will present his ideas for change and the seminar will invite engagement from the guest panel and the audience to raise the debate on the ideas that David will present. The outcome of the seminar will be to make further submissions to the NSW Labour Party, NSW Coalition and NSW Greens to advocate change for those ideas and proposals from David that have total or majority support from the audience.
