The Better Planning Network (BPN) is a volunteer-based organisation. Founded in 2012 in response to the NSW government’s controversial planning reforms, today we have more than 470 affiliate groups across NSW.

Our aim is for robust and visionary planning system for NSW - one that fosters best practice environmental, heritage, social sustainability and design outcomes.   

Together, we succeeded in stalling the Planning Bills in 2013. However, the State Government is now using the backdoor to push through some of the controversial changes. This effectively bypasses the Parliamentary process.

In response, the Planning for People Charter A Community Charter for Good Planning in NSW was developed by a coalition of community and environmental peak bodies. This includes Better Planning Network, the National Trust of Australia (NSW), the Nature Conservation Council of NSW, the Total Environment Centre, the Inner Sydney Regional Council for Social Development, Australia International Council for Monuments and Sites, Our Land Our Water Our Future and the National Parks Association of NSW.

Following the appointment of Rob Stokes as the new Minister for Planning in 2015, our aim is make sure best practice planning is achieved through collaborative and authentic community engagement process.
