Participants will examine the fundaments of planning theory and practice, the current statutory framework (and proposed changes) and the role of Local Government, and councillors in particular, in planning matters.

Local Government planning functions are complex and often give rise to controversial debates over the development of sites, precincts and suburbs. 

This course will cover councils’ current role in plan making and development assessment, as well as discuss the implications of review process on Local Government.
