WEPA recently endorsed a letter prepared by the Lane Cove Bushland and Conservation Society to the Greater Sydney Commission. The letter seeks community engagement prior to the release of the Commission’s draft District Plans in November 2016. This is particularly important given the powers of the Commission to override Local Environmental Plans and assess rezoning proposals and the chaotic nature of current Council amalgamations. If you want to find out more about the Commission, BPN Planning Network provides an overview here.
Lane Cove Bushland and Conservation Society has invited Rod Simpson, Environment Commissioner in the Greater Sydney Commission to speak at its meeting on Tuesday 9 August 2016. The meeting will be held in Lane Cove from 7.30pm to 9pm at a venue to be confirmed (watch the Society Facebook site). All WEPA members are invited.
