NSW worst for planning
Released 1 April 2011

Calls for a reform of NSW’s planning system have been strengthened by the release of a daft research report by the Productivity Commission, according to the Urban Taskforce.   

Taskforce Chief Executive Aaron Gadiel said the wide-ranging report found that NSW had the highest residential, commercial and industrial infrastructure charges, limited zonings and uncooperative state/council relations.

“NSW clearly stands out as the state that is cursed with Australia’s worst planning system,” said Mr Gadiel.

“NSW is heading for a housing shortfall of 100,000 homes within just three years.

“Sydney’s actual housing supply is running at half the government’s target. The housing undersupply means more congestion, as people live further away from their place of work, and higher rents.”
