Policies always sound great but it's how they will be implemented that concerns me. Reducing barriers and red tape usually means make it easier for developers to make money at the expense of the environment. Barriers and "red tape" were put there for a reason. If you want to speedup development then more staffing at local levels to process applications would help. Question then is who pays for that.
Under the section on the Environment, it is stated that the intent is to "enhance direction to prepare for impacts of changing climate" and " enhance stormwater management". It doesn't say how but I would hope that protecting and restoring wetlands and protecting and planting lots of trees would be part of the strategy.
