We are living in a world of rapid transformation, where disruptive forces are increasingly upending the way we live our lives, the societies we live in, and the institutions that serve us.
Today’s businesses, governments, and individuals need to have the capacity to respond to economic and market shifts unimaginable even a few years ago.
While we cannot always predict the future, we can seek to manage it through updated and effective planning. Governments need to respond to change much quicker than it has in the past, or we will be swept away in the tide. We need to be more flexible, less dogmatic and be able to work in a shifting environment.
This Discussion Paper aims to commence a dialogue with NSW planning authorities and stakeholders about the future of “freight and logistics” – that is the things we handle, store, distribute and receive - in a different light. The “F-word” is not understood and requires the planning system to take interest and understand the different ways to manage and facilitate the movement and location of freight activities in order to help create sustainable and liveable communities. Freight and logistics are not an add on service but an integral part of the regional, metropolitan and local strategic planning conversation. The solutions discussed at this event and throughout the paper are about more than just industrial land, it’s about how goods move into and out of our city in an efficient and customer responsive manner.
We look forward to you joining us for the start of this city-shaping discussion.
