AUDRC Research P4: A summary report on the research and development of innovative tools for community engagement, communication and collaborative design for planning and urban design policy

Research output: Book/ReportOther output

Abstract

The development, implementation and application of planning and design policy across a range of scales to meet strategic planning objectives requires the dissemination and incorporation of spatially related knowledge between a range of stakeholders. This knowledge can be complex and often requires demonstration of the policy development process as well as the spatial outcomes themselves. Stakeholders can range from professions with specialised knowledge through to the general population who may initially have a limited context for being able to understand and contribute to policy development and application.
Effective engagement which achieves the objectives of both dissemination/incorporation of spatially related knowledge and doing this in a broadly inclusive and collaborative manner promises to not only get the policy components right but to also generate broad support to assist with its
carriage and implementation, creating the conditions for community-led planning.
Alternatively a lack of inclusivity and engagement in the development of planning and design policy can create the conditions for stern resistance during implementation and application.
The development of built environment planning and design policy is important as cities grow through population growth and migration. Getting the policy settings both correct and supported is critical to be able to either uphold or improve the quality of life for existing and new residents.
The research and development activities outlined in this summary report are presented as tools to help achieve this.
