NSW Upper House Inquiry Into the Impacts of the Western Harbour and Beaches Link
Your Submission is Needed by 18th June

Over 3000 submissions were made against the Western Harbour and Beaches Link Projects. A 11,000 strong petition was submitted to Parliament along with thousands of letters expressing significant concern. The Inquiry was self-referred by the Public Works Committee themselves - they want to know if they are doing the right thing allowing this project to go ahead.

We have developed an quick guide and template for you to use. You can answer a few of the terms of reference or all of them - it's up to you. Alternatively you can include your planning submission with a cover letter that points out how your submission addresses the Terms of Reference. The only rule is that at least one of the Terms of Reference needs to be addressed.

5) Better and more sustainable planning

6) Greater transparency and accountability

7) Making sure your area and concerns aren't ignored - other areas are speaking up
