Town Planning Practices - Advanced

Town Planning Practices - Advanced


Advanced uses practical examples to guide participants on how to formulate a good planning outcome based on a planning framework which has a strategic focus supported by sound statutory planning processes. The exercise of planning discretion in decision making is discussed and the importance of the quasi-judicial role of Council is stressed.

The course focuses on helping participants understand how planning processes must be consistent and transparent and when decisions are made they are done so in the public interest.
