27 Jul 2016
News | Leading interest groups have been working with the Greater Sydney Commission to identify and prioritise issues to be addressed in the District Plans.

CEO of the NSW Council of Social Service (NCOSS), Tracy Howe, said: "The community sector, along with the variety of stakeholders involved, will bring a real depth of knowledge and experience to the table. I'm really excited about what we can achieve when we work together like this."

Engagement with peak interest groups will cover a range of issues spanning economic, social and environmental spheres. They will be led by the Economic, Social and Environmental Commissioners.

The engagement will follow a participatory framework, which is being co-designed by NCOSS and the Total Environment Centre and involve over 40 peak interest groups from across Greater Sydney.

The current process of identifying and prioritising issues will inform the Draft District Plans. District Plans will be the link between the State Government’s metropolitan plan and Council’s Local Environmental Plans. They will be released for public exhibition at the end of November 2016.
