"Better Planning NSW" Submission 2009

The Scarlet Alliance applauds the NSW government’s initiative to consider if aspects of
the NSW planning system need reform to ensure the right balance in achieving
sustainable social and environmental outcomes. We support any initiative that seeks to
understand how restrictive planning controls affect competition within the sex industry
and identify reforms that would result in a more equitable planning system. In order to
promote a fair and competitive business environment and improved health and safety
outcomes for sex workers, their clients and the community, a level planning playing field
is an essential first step.
