Knowledge is Power
As a passionate urban planner I enjoy sharing my expertise and knowledge with other consultants working in the same industry. The complexities of our built environment can create obstacles for achieving successful outcomes. Subsequently, I have dedicated this page to share my reports and tips that will evolve to become a depository, showcasing a wealth of information to assist in creating a sustainable urban future.
One of the aims of The Planning Boardroom is to disseminate information to architects, urban planners, developers and other stakeholders in the property industry.
Throughout 2011, The Planning Boardroom will be releasing expert tips and new fact sheets on a regular basis. For instant access to these publications as they are released, subscribe to the Boardroom Brief by completing the form on the right column of this page.
The Boardroom Brief is a free fortnightly email newsletter that provides a snapshot of the latest articles and news published on The Planning Boardroom. To subscribe or for more information click here
