Urban and Regional Planners and other Built Environment Professionals
About the Project
Overall the project wants to show how we can plan communities to be more inclusive of people with disabilities, chronic illness and mental illness of all ages, particularly in urban-rural fringe and regional areas.
Our aim for this stage of the research is to:
understand how access and inclusion is currently incorporated in practice,
learn what has worked and why, through shared practice examples,
learn where tensions still exist, and
identify opportunities and what is needed (short to long term) to help make inclusion an everyday practise.
Who can be involved?
With the support of the Planning Institute of Australia we are hoping to engage widely with Australian planners and other built environment professionals.
People working in urban, urban-rural fringe, peri-urban, regional and remote areas in Australia.
All ages - young to experienced planners
Any role - including strategic planning, statutory planning-development, spatial planning, place making, infrastructure, transport, open space and urban design, and community planning.
