Rescode Practice (Planet)
The 'ResCode' residential development standards are a key aspect of the Victorian planning system and central to the assessment of residential development applications of up to four storeys. This two day intensive course provides planners with an understanding of Clauses 54 and 55. The collaborative workshop provides particpants with an opportunity to assess an actual development proposal against each ResCode objective and standard and learn when and how discretion should be used to vary the ResCode standards.
The course introduces plan reading and spatial measurement skills, as well as other tools such as ShadowDraw and an analysis of VCAT case law and Practice Notes which will assist planners in assessing development applications.
