Hybrid Event - Available online and In Person. Offices of Hoyne, Level 5, 99 Elizabeth Street, Sydney
Zoning, the basic tool of city planning, originated in the United States. This approach to planning required some form of governance or every part of the city could be restrictive. Over many decades, many US cities adopted rules for setting zoning and related controls. Cities, by and large, opted for metropolitan wide independent commissions appointed by mayors, with council consent, to govern planning. Fast forward to the 1980s, metropolitan commissions were transformed to regional commissions to govern the planning of multi-city planning and development. In this talk, Professor Ed Blakely will describe the best and worst features of the US regional approach and what we might adopt here in Sydney as a potential direction for planning our region.
