Better Planning Network
The Better Planning Network (BPN) is a volunteer-based organisation founded on 26 August 2012 by community groups concerned about the NSW Government's planning reforms.
On 28 November 2013, then NSW Minister for Planning and Infrastructure Brad Hazzard withdrew his Planning Bills due to heavy Upper House amendments made to these Bills by the Labor, Greens and Shooters and Fishers parties. Since then, no further announcement on the NSW Planning Bills has been made, however, on 22 April 2014, the NSW planning portfolio changed hands. Under the first Cabinet of new Premier Mike Baird, the Hon. Pru Goward, MP is now Minister for Planning and the Hon Rob Stokes, MP is Minister for the Environment, Minister for Heritage and Assistant Minister for Planning.
The BPN congratulates the Hon. Pru Goward, MP and the Hon. Rob Stokes, MP on their appointments. This is a fresh start for planning in NSW.
