Planning for Non-Planners

12 Jul, Online

Planning for Non-Planners

Aimed at staff in both the public and private practice firms and NGO who work with planners and would like to gain a better understanding of how the system works, this 3.5 hour workshop is designed for those from a non-planning background and would like to gain a better understanding of how the planning system actually works in practice in New Zealand.

This workshop will explain the role of plans (Regional, Unitary and District Plans), plan changes, resource consents within the development process and will demystify the planning jargon so non-planners can actively engage in the planning system.

Learning outcomes:

  • To purpose and rationale for planning;
  • The basis of the planning system in New Zealand
  • The role of Regional, Unitary and District Plans;
  • Understanding Zoning and Resource Consents
  • Understanding the role of the planner in the planning system;
