Planning & design for better performance | 4 December 2019

Register now

As South Australia continues its journey into a predicted future of increased storm intensity, lower rainfall and extended hot and dry periods, there’s never been a more pressing time to plan and design ahead.

The Planning and Design Code (the Code) is the cornerstone of the new planning system that will help revolutionise the way that development is regulated in South Australia.

The InSite Water online tool for small-scale developments has been developed to assess the performance of a range of water sensitive urban design elements against the design criteria.

Allison Collins is the Team Leader Strategic Research at the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. Allison led the delivery of the preparation of the Blueprint for SA’s Planning and Design Code Introductory Paper. She will provide an overview of Phase Two of the Planning and Design Code, which includes rural council areas with small towns and settlements, and Phase Three, which includes urban council areas and councils with regional towns and cities.

Mellissa Bradley is the Program Manager of Water Sensitive SA and was awarded the Leadership Award at the 2019 Smart Water Awards. She is a strong advocate for the creation of more liveable cities and towns through the delivery of urban growth and infill development that delivers best practice water sensitive urban design. Mellissa will provide an overview of the InSite Water tool.

When: Wednesday 4 December 2019 at 4.30pm

Where: Thomas Cooper Room, The Coopers Ale House, 316 Pultney St, Adelaide.

Please join us after the presentations to celebrate achievements in 2019, and to contemplate the challenges that 2020 and beyond will bring

Cost: Free to members; $30 non members

Register now via Eventbrite before 28 November, 2019
