Recent State Planning Policies (SPP), particularly the Design WA suite and draft Planning for Water SPP, emphasise the importance of responding to site context as part of any planning or development activity.

These training sessions have been developed to share learnings from the application of water sensitive urban design over the last decade with a focus on using site context to optimise outcomes.

The sessions are framed around site context that is representative of the key critical conditions in the Perth and Peel region. Additional sessions have also been developed to provide more detail around key areas of application.
