SOS comment on draft Metro Planning Strategy

Here’s what one veteran planner recently said about the draft MPS and its “20 minute city – living locally” motherhood objective:

“The idea that a key mission of planning in a city of 4-6 million people is to promote “living locally” as the headline objective is to misunderstand what a city is about”.

We agree.  Check out our submission on the draft MPS here.


We strongly encourage you to read our comments and then send your own, as a submission to the  Planning Dept.  as well as directly to the  Planning Minister  and to the  Premier.

Our political masters need to know what we all think about planning and about their efforts (or lack of) to consult adequately with the community.

NOTE:   Submissions close 5pm Thursday March 28.
