UDIA NSW Submission on Infrastructure SEPP

UDIA commend DPE for undertaking this review, to improve planning processes that lead to greater efficiencies for infrastructure delivery, which is critical to support growth and meet the housing supply and jobs needs of NSW. The review is consistent with our “Make Planning Work” policy initiative, which advocates for the substantial reform of the NSW planning system to remove the bureaucracy, red tape and poor planning that holds back development.

We acknowledge that the proposed changes to the ISEPP, as well as the adoption of our recommendations outlined below, will help address some of the current obstacles which impact on the coordinated and prompt delivery of infrastructure, which can cause blockages and blind spots which undermine housing supply and affordability.

We will, however, continue to advocate for ongoing changes to the NSW planning system to achieve more broadscale outcomes such as less bureaucracy to ensure the coordinated delivery of infrastructure to support growth.
