Recent changes to the Western Australian Planning Framework and the introduction of State Planning Policy 7.2 – Precinct Design and Guidelines sees a focus on the planning and design of vibrant activity centres, station precincts, urban corridors and higher-density mixed-use areas. The policy requires a tailored, performance-based approach to precinct design, supported by design review and considered community participation.

This course follows on from the Planning for Precincts session held in June 2021, which considered the ‘preparation stage’ of precinct planning (concentrating on the early stages of vision setting, site and context analysis, and engagement).

This follow-up session will focus on design for a precinct, project preparation and implementation. It will provide participants with practical real-world examples of the interplay between SPP 7.2’s precinct design elements. Workshop activities will bring participants together to demonstrate the connections between climate, the green network, proposed land uses, the desired built form and how these may influence the structural elements of a site.

You will learn how planning and architecture work together to distil density targets into practical street and block layouts that encourage successful open spaces and building types.

DPLH will also offer insights to prepare resources and write successful briefs when you are planning for precincts in your local area, a must for any planning manager, senior strategic planner or leader.

Suitable for
Local planning managers, senior planners and allied professionals who will benefit and share the appropriate steps when considering precinct planning.
