Strategic land use planning
At its heart land use planning is concerned with managing and providing for growth and change for cities, settlements and areas of economic activity. Strategic planning is the setting of policies and strategies, including desired spatial outcomes that will guide future land use, development and infrastructure decisions within an area, taking into account the protection of natural and cultural values.
At ERA we are involved in strategic planning from the local to regional level and bring to our clients an intimate experience and knowledge of the strategic planning context in Tasmania and changes occurring through the State Government’s planning reform process. We can undertake the preparation and review of local area plans, land use strategies, structure plans and precinct plans including consultation with stakeholders and the community. We can also undertake land use, urban economics and demographic research to inform policy documents.
