Agenda

The Planning, Development and Infrastructure Bill 2015 represents the best opportunity in over 20 years to better integrate water sensitive urban design (WSUD) policy and guidance within the planning system.  Hear how South Australia can learn from the experiences of our interstate colleagues with respect to best practice WSUD policy and implementation.  Then join us to workshop the potential way forward for South Australia to deliver a consistent approach to WSUD to create more liveable and resilient communities.

Outcomes of seminar and workshop sessions

  • Gain an understanding of the opportunities for integration of WSUD into planning policy
  • Identify possible pathways to facilitate the mainstream adoption of WSUD
  • Identify the supporting tools and resources for industry and local government required to underpin any new policy regime.
