Budget funds to shape better planning system

Budget funds to shape better planning system

first_imgBudget funds to shape better planning system The NSW Government has pledged $240 million this financial year and more than $570 million over the next four years to create a more timely, certain and transparent planning system.Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the 2020-21 NSW Budget investment would result in faster planning determinations, better public spaces and a uniform digital platform to be used across state government and local councils.“The challenges of COVID-19 have given us a unique opportunity to reform the planning system to enable us to build a better NSW and these changes will drive greater efficiency and productivity long after the pandemic,” Mr Stokes said.“In addition to the highly successful Planning System Acceleration Program, the introduction of a Planning Delivery Unit will fast-track assessments of complex proposals.”Mr Stokes said that the Planning System Acceleration Program had determined more than 100 projects since April, creating the opportunity for more than 50,000 jobs, 25,000 homes and 400 hectares of public space.“The first program accelerated shovel-ready projects, but the next phase will focus on medium-term projects,” Mr Stokes said.“The planning system is one of the levers the NSW Government is using to help stimulate the economy and keep it moving. We are always looking for ways to make the system smarter.”Funding will go towards:e-Planning: $22 million for 2020-2021 ($92 million over four years) for a single, common digital platform for all councils and state agencies to use for planning matters which reduces development assessment times and drives overall productivity and investment across the state;Public Spaces Legacy Program: $76 million in 2020-2021 ($250 million over three years) to incentivise local councils to accelerate development applications and rezonings and be rewarded with grants for public space in the local community;Planning System Productivity Reform: $64 million in 2020-2021 ($133 million over three years) to significantly reduce timeframes in decision making across the NSW planning system over the next three years, including a 33 per cent reduction (in timeframes) for planning proposals, 25 per cent reduction for regionally significant development approvals and 17 per cent reduction in major project assessments;Planning Delivery Unit: $12 million in 2020-2021 ($28 million over three years) for a team that works with NSW Government agencies to fast-track planning projects. Initial projects will create opportunities for more than 66,500 new jobs and 50,000 new homes across Greater Sydney; andAccelerated Infrastructure Fund: Provides almost $76 million in 2020-21 to support the delivery of community infrastructure in high growth areas of Blacktown and The Hills Local Government Areas in north-west Sydney. Includes funding for councils to deliver local roads, stormwater infrastructure and public space.“These initiatives will help create a planning system that is more efficient and less complex – whether you’re dealing with the NSW Government or councils,” Mr Stokes said.“These have been challenging times and we are making sure the planning system is doing its bit for our economic recovery.” /Public Release.

Křížková already has a replacement for her colleague Lekešová. It’s…

first_imgThe audience knows you mainly as a sports presenter, now a change awaits you. What attracted you to moderating Sam at Home? You won’t enjoy as much adrenaline and tension as in sports during lifestyle conversations.On the contrary, I think the adrenaline will be up in an hour and a half of live broadcasts. I am looking forward to it so much. That’s what attracted me to Sam at home. I don’t really enjoy the improvisation in front of the camera at Branek Points of Seconds, news is just another discipline.You studied history-philosophy, at the same time you spent several years at the Faculty of Law, now you are a professional sport. That’s a pretty wide range of interests. Are you looking forward to meeting inspiring people from different industries in the new show?This is exactly the main reason why the offer attracted me. Interesting guests from many fields go to Sam at home and it is my duty to study their work and to orientate in topics. I am excited that my lifelong curiosity and desire to learn new things now has an official dimension.You will continue to play sports on TV. How can it be combined? Or does this dynamism and diversity suit you on the contrary?I love it. When I do sports for a while and other topics for a while, I have a much greater appetite for work. My boss perceives that this is an opportunity for me to move somewhere again, he congratulated me on his success and I am grateful for that. I’ve been working in the sports newsroom for sixteen years and I still enjoy it. In addition, my son was three years old in June, he will go to kindergarten after the holidays, so I will make good use of the freer program.Have you ever thought in the past that you could moderate Sam at home?Actually, no, because I take the show as relaxation and I didn’t imagine that it could ever be work. It is a fact that our three children also know the jingle and can sing it. When I once asked for fun if they could handle the jingle of Goals of Points of Seconds, which has been almost unchanged since 1956, only the oldest Elenka could do it. I’ll have to finish them.What do you like about the show? What topics will be closest to you?I like it overall. It’s a nice show with interesting guests. When you look at him, you really know something. Moreover, in such a non-violent form. I’ve always watched him in kindergarten, and when I have time, I always turn it on. I know it may sound weird, but I’m really looking forward to all the topics.Barbora ČernoškováHow did the moderation offer come about and did you accept it immediately, or did you have to consider it?In May, my phone rang if I would like to come to the audition. I was interested in how new presenters are selected for such a show, so I went and it was a great experience. Only when I accidentally saw a list of candidates in the make-up room did it seem almost impossible for me to succeed. But it worked. I then had to decide with the director whether the new job could be combined with the existing one, or whether I would have to make a decision. I’m glad it worked out the way I wanted it to.You will moderate in a pair with Lucie Křížková, have you seen each other and tried to cooperate? How will you do it?We saw each other a few times when I was at Sam’s home as a guest. And Lucka was also part of the audition, because it was a model broadcast in pairs. With Lucka and also Jana Havrdová. They were both very nice. I’ve known Lucka from the screen for years, I remember cheering for her when she won Miss Czech Republic as an athlete. Paradoxically, I knew more about her husband David, who is an excellent yachtsman and also worked as an Olympic expert on Czech Television.Will there be any other changes with you in the format of the show, which will start the 23rd season in September?I don’t know everything about them yet, we will still have meetings. But the most important thing will definitely remain. That it will be a nice show that people will be happy to watch. Perhaps I will contribute a little to that as well.last_img read more

Yahoo Fantasy Football Picks Week 2: NFL DFS lineup advice for cash games

Yahoo Fantasy Football Picks Week 2: NFL DFS lineup advice for cash games

first_imgLast week’s Yahoo DFS cash lineup had its hits, including our three-man Seahawks stack combining for five TDs and Kenny Golladay finding the end zone, but with relative letdowns from Tyler Boyd, Leonard Fournette, and Nick Chubb, we didn’t quite live up to our own expectations. We’ll do better with our Week 2 daily fantasy football picks, which include a few of last week’s players who remain underpriced values.Perhaps the biggest risks we’re taking is with our QB-WR stack. Jared Goff struggled last week, and picking one of his three WRs is always a roll of the dice (which is why they’re all priced within $2 of each other). We’re hoping to alleviate any risk there with three other high-target WR1s, none of whom break the bank. Our TE is also a target-machine and perhaps a bit underpriced. TE: Zach Ertz, Eagles @ Falcons ($22). It was a tough call between Ertz and Evan Engram, who’s actually $1 less, but he felt like he was going to be a chalky pick after his huge Week 1. Ertz’s 5-54 line doesn’t jump off the screen at you, but we all know he’s Carson Wentz’s go-to guy. Atlanta’s defense still has holes, and we expect a high-target game for Ertz on Sunday night. He shouldn’t be $7 cheaper than George Kittle, who offers similar upside.FLEX: Tyler Boyd, Bengals vs. 49ers ($20). Like Golladay, we had Boyd last week and we’re going back to the well because of how underpriced he is. John Ross III had one more target (12), but Boyd actually had more catches, grabbing eight of his 11 looks. The 49ers defense looked improved, but playing a second straight road game — this time staying out East between contests — won’t do it any favors. Boyd is still the Bengals’ No. 1 receiver, and this is a good spot for him to show it.D/ST: Buffalo Bills @ Giants ($13). Eli Manning looking mostly competent last week (one sack, no INTs, lost fumble) only makes us want to bet against him more. Buffalo’s solid defense got to Sam Darnold four times and forced a fumble, so it’s safe to assume they can cause problems for Manning. At just $13, the Bills are a great value and a nice dollar saver for other positions. WEEK 2 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerOur lineup is clearly going for a balanced approach, as we have no one priced above $25. Not having Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, or DeAndre Hopkins might put us at a disadvantage, but we have high floors across the board, at least as long as Goff comes through.Week 2 DFS: FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPQB: Jared Goff, Rams vs. Saints ($35). Goff lost people some money last week, but we’re hoping we can chalk it up to simply being on the road. Last year, he had a 22:3 TD-to-INT ratio in L.A. and a 10-9 mark elsewhere. One of his few good road games was in the Superdome, where he posted 391 yards and three scores. He wasn’t as good in New Orleans in the playoffs (297 yards, TD), but this still qualifies as a favorable matchup.WEEK 2 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endRB: Sony Michel, Patriots @ Dolphins ($25). Everyone will be hammering Patriots in this game, so we want at least one piece. Michel was about the only Pats player who struggled on Sunday night, totaling just 14 yards on 15 carries. A much softer matchup awaits, and you know there will be touchdown opportunities. Gambling on Pats backs is never a sure thing, but Michel should pay off this week.RB: Mark Ingram, Ravens vs. Cardinals ($23). Arizona did a decent job against Kerryon Johnson in Week 1 (16 carries, 49 yards), but Detroit’s rushing attack is much different than the Raven’s. Ingram will cede some touches to other backs, but he’ll ultimately lead the team in carries. The Cardinals were the worst team against fantasy RBs last season, and despite a decent Week 1, we’re not sure much has changed. WR: Keenan Allen, Chargers @ Lions ($24). For some reason, Allen isn’t priced or thought of like other stud receivers. He dominated the Chargers’ receiver target share in Week 1, getting 10 looks. The next most for a wideout was three, and TE Hunter Henry had just five. Allen came down with eight of those balls for 123 yards and score, so getting him for $24 against a Lions defense that just allowed Larry Fitzgerald to beat it repeatedly (8-113-1) feels like a deal.WR: Cooper Kupp, Rams vs. Saints ($22). You could really pick any of Kupp, Robert Woods, and Brandin Cooks, but Kupp looked spry while catching seven of 10 targets for 46 yards last week. Obviously we’ll want the yardage total to go up, but we know the volume is going to be there. Cooks is a dollar cheaper and more appealing in GPPs, but we’ll save the dollar off Woods and hope Kupp draws the most favorable coverage.WR: Kenny Golladay, Lions vs. Chargers ($16). Even with Danny Amendola leading the team in targets (13) and TE T.J. Hockenson leading in yards (123), Golladay managed to catch four of nine looks for 42 yards and a score last week. He’s still the Lions “No. 1 WR”, and while that might not carry as much weight as it did even a week ago, it’s still silly he can be had for $16. The Chargers secondary didn’t look particularly impressive against Indy’s No. 1 T.Y. Hilton last week (87 yards, two TDs), so there’s plenty of hope for Golladay.MORE DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup builderlast_img read more
