The town must develop a heart. The new planning act must enshrine ESD including the use of the precautionary principle and intergenerational equity. So as a result big business, who are able to pay consultants to be engaged in this strategic phase are likely to sway the public participation component away from natural environmental considerations in favor of economic advantages.
This is to ensure that the variety of potential controls that apply to the development within an instrument for a particular location is appropriate and acceptable to the community.
But how much of this activity is settling in the town? Concerns related to the Green paper proposal for New Planning Scheme objectives I have some concerns and issues with the language of the objectives of the new plan.
It proposes green corridor links and will revolutionize the current planning scheme making the strategic a larger part of planning policy than the integrated planning approaches of the past. Public priority infrastructure applications — These must be assessed at the times of the planning instrument reviews.
In particular, resources need to move toward a next generation of planners who can lead the integration of infrastructure and land use, and better understand land economics and growth management.
However it is recommended that the use of a code assessment process be used for genuinely known impact developments. It is not enough to require agency input at the strategic planning phase. Simple — reduce complexity and remove red tape Certain — provide predictability and certainty about how decisions are made for both investors and the community Transparent — base decisions on strong community participation and evidence Efficient — achieve time frames for completion of planning processes through increased accountability for efficient decision-making Integrated — promote greater cooperation and partnerships between all levels of government, and balance environmental protection with economic growth Responsive — provide flexibility to respond to change and ensure markets are competitive These form the objectives of the new Act.
The attached link may be helpful in planning these natural spaces, as it is the intension of the new planning scheme to wind back the provisions of voluntary conservation agreements VCAs.
We suggest a re-evaluation of the RTA proposed design of a 4 lane highway through the township and we would implore the RTA to involve Infrastructure NSW to find funds and partnerships with other state agencies and instrumentalities, to prevent further severing the town and provide a plausible plan for the future revitalization of the town.
Under the strategic planning instrument making phase, requirements for the carrying out of environmental studies, consideration of environmental criteria, and processes for effective community engagement must be included. We look forward to reading the White Paper with the above considerations included.
A properly planned heart within the transport precinct would connect the two halves of the town. A genuine commitment to ESD requires legislative mechanisms that mandate consideration of environmental matters and set minimum environmental standards.
To help encourage private investment on the east of the Wyong Station, the town will need to establish a good pedestrian link across the railway station.
Detailed plans and information may be required to address the various types and scales of development. The new planning system must have ecologically sustainable development ESD as its overarching objective. Corridor Planning — In this new planning proposal the government has proposed a strategic approach to planning a landscape or region.
Existing methods of public participation for example notification procedures and exhibition periods should be retained in the new planning system for individual proposals under the planning instruments. It suggests that the current system of checks and proper assessment has no value except to bind up the process.
This approach would also solve the east west pedestrian connection. These checks are in a system of integrated development, where objectives are codified. This means that a range of land use components will be considered and planned for in the plan. A genuine commitment to ESD requires legislative mechanisms that mandate consideration of environmental matters and set minimum environmental standards.
In other words, its application depends on the views of the user. However, all applications with such a provision under the current system went through a public exhibition stage.Wyong Council, through its planning department, has attempted to head off this trend by providing a framework for business and commercial development within the town.
As part of this, recently Wyong Council released a rezoning plan and amendments to the Wyong Township’s Development Control Plan No. 7 with the intention of encouraging a revitalization of the town. Wyong Shire is population growth and a decentralised type of development that encourages high private car use, fragmented bushland and high edge effects such as rubbish dumping, weed infestation, stormwater pollution.
Any reference to “Wyong Shire”, the “Shire”, “Wyong Local Government Area (LGA)” or “the LGA” mentioned in this plan is to be taken to refer to the land identified in the Land Application Map LAP_ under Wyong LEP and figure 1 below.

Questions are being asked about the appointment of a former property developer to a high ranking directorate on a Central Coast council. Wyong Shire Council has appointed the former general.
May 08, · Introduction.
Local Government Authorities and State governments are faced with prospects of adopting governance procedures to incorporate Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) within their urban planning.
There is thus an opportunity for community precinct committees (PCs) to play a role in this ESD challenge.Download
