Our planning system has been captured by corporate interests. From overcrowded schools to congestion and parking, poorly planned, unsustainable development is putting a burden on local infrastructure and residents have been cut out of decision making.
Dr Natalie Osborne, lecturer in Griffith University’s School of Environment. Her work is primarily in the fields of critical human geography and environmental planning. She is focused on social and environmental justice in human settlements and the development of more just, resilient and sustainable futures.
Dr Erin Evans, the president of the West End Community Association (WECA). WECA was formed in 2004 to promotes the values, events and the people that make Kurilpa a vibrant and diverse community. WECA has been involved in campaigns around the West Village development and advocates for sustainable urban development.
Nick Winwood, a key organiser of Save the Gap. The group is concerned that the Ferny Grove/Upper Kedron Local Plan has been overridden and substituted for an inferior land swap. Save the Gap has been fighting to protect the green corridors and local green spaces that define area.
Pia Annan-Anderso, a committee member of Save Our Carseldine. The group is concerned that the Carseldine Urban Village project will destroy a vital wildlife corridor of ecological significance and add strain to already overburdened public infrastructure.
Come along to hear about our plans to reform the planning system to work for us, not the big end of town.
