Strategic Planning relates to the preparation of policy (usually Local Environmental Plans and Development Control Plans in NSW) and the interpretation of that policy. We can both write and interpret policy, as required.
This involves survey, analysis, interpretation, forecasting and policy formulation.
Much of our work involves the review of and commenting on draft policies, such as draft LEPs.
Where a Council is proposing a new Statutory Planning Regime (such as the Draft Sydney City Plan) we provide advice to individuals, developers and communities on how that draft plan may affect them. This may include Heritage Listing, changes to Height Limits, Floor Space Ratios etc.
We can make then formal representation on behalf of our clients to the relevant Council in relation to proposed statutory planning changes.
aSquare Planning staff have the capacity and skills to research and draft new polices for authorities and individuals, whether site specific, master plan polices or DCP and LEP policies.
We have recent overseas experience in preparing a Development Plan for Beruwala, a region of Sri Lanka. This was prepared for the Urban Development Authority of Sri Lanka.
