AIUS NSW Seminar
The challenge of planning in a democratic society
John Mant, Planning Lawyer and former Councilor, City of Sydney City Council
Les Stein, Adjunct Professor of Urban Planning, Sydney University
Marcus Ray, Group Deputy Secretary, Planning and Assessment, Department of Planning & Environment
There are many examples of influential planning by authoritarian regimes — think of Parisian boulevards — but the task of achieving good planning through public participatory systems is much more difficult. How then should we define successful planning in a democratic society? And for whom should the benefits be aimed? Our speakers will be examining such challenging questions.
Wednesday, 14th August 2019
5.00-7.00pm, followed by refreshments
Rydges World Square, 389 Pitt St, Sydney
