BPN Fact Sheet - Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD)

One of the main changes in the prosed NSW New Planning System is to remove the current Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) from the Planning Act. In NSW ESD is referenced in 60 other Acts. It is proposed to replace ESD with "Sustainable Development" without the current principles that define ESD in the Act. The Department has not been clear in public forums about this change and its importance. This BPN Fact Sheet explains the issue. File is 221 KB PDF.
