REDWatch Community Workshop – Planning Basics for Residents – 13 March 2012
Is planning speak a fog to you? Do you want to know how building designs are determined and how the Planning system works? If so then you may be interested in a Community Workshop REDWatch is putting on with Professor Peter Phibbs, to help everyday residents find out who decides what, how to find meaning in all that jargon – terms like DA, LEP, DCP, Master Plan, SEPP – and how residents can influence planning decisions. Peter Phibbs runs a day course at UWS aimed at non-planners and we have asked him to come to Redfern and run a session for any residents who would like to know more about planning.
Planning Basics for Residents will be held on Tuesday 13 March 2012 at Redfern Community Centre, 29 Hugo Street Redfern (near Redfern Station). This is a two hour session from 6-8pm but please get there before 6pm as we need to start promptly at 6pm. You can download a poster / flyer for this forum at Planning Basics for Residents – Tuesday 13th March 2012 Poster (121 KB PDF).
This workshop is funded with a grant from Project Local. REDWatch was successful in obtaining $2,500 funding through the first round of Project Local community voting run through Central Magazine – see REDWatch Project Local Winner. The project will provide REDWatch with the resources to run a series of four larger community forums as well as to better resource its everyday activities.
