Sustainable Australia (NSW)

Sustainable Australia is an independent community party from the sensible centre. We believe in an evidence-based approach to policy - not a far left / right ideology.

Sustainable Australia has carefully developed a comprehensive policy platformWithin this platform, we have prioritised four big issues:

These issues are inter-related in a virtuous circle, but our campaigns focus first on better planning to stop overdevelopment.


  • Return real planning power to local communities (including through citizen juries)
  • Deliver new community infrastructure before more housing
  • Reduce population growth pressures by lowering immigration from a record 200,000+ p.a. back to the long term average of 70,000 p.a.
