Planning & Precincts

Planning & Precincts

Livable cities and regions are defined by safe and thriving communities that offer proximity to jobs, entertainment and cultural options, and healthy environments.

State government departments and agencies with responsibility for planning, precincts and public spaces play an important role in shaping cities and regions. Other agencies and institutions – from health departments to universities to local councils – are focused on concentrating or expanding activities to improve service delivery, drive additional value or improve livability for local communities.

We work with government departments overseeing planning, precincts and public spaces, agencies driving regional and local development and universities, education and research institutions seeking to maximise research and commercialisation opportunities.

Our work includes

Planning and regional development

Governments are keenly focused on maximising opportunities and liveability for people and communities in cities and regional locations. We work with departments and agencies to develop strategies and plans to maximise the economic, environmental, social and cultural benefits of cities and regions, and the precincts and places within them.

Educational institutions

Many educational institutions are exploring opportunities for new campuses and facilities to deliver greater value to students, expand their research capacity and build greater links with industry. We work with universities and other educational institutions to plan and help deliver campus, infrastructure and research developments.

Unlocking the social licence gate to decarbonisation

 

It is widely accepted that we will need to deploy renewable energy at a huge scale to reach net zero – yet renewables make up just 25 per cent of supply to the National Electricity Market. The hardest yards of decarbonising power lie ahead, and we have barely begun on oil and gas.

Policy reform where the environment connects with the economy and community

The drivers for reforms vary from combatting climate change to regional development, creating jobs and improving resilience to natural disasters. These swirling forces are putting pressure on policymakers to enact substantial reform.

Community-led recovery from extreme events sounds great – but what does it really mean?

A central theme in recovery efforts is for them to be led by the community. This is inspired by an intuitive logic: people most impacted by an emergency should be able to shape their recovery.
