Neighbourhood character is arguably the most contentious aspect of residential development planning. This course clarifies the concept of "neighbourhood character' and provides a simple framework by which planners can begin to understand this issue.

The course focuses on defining what neighbourhood character means, using photographs to show different neighbourhood character typologies, using photographic examples to discuss whether these developments 'respect' neighbourhood character, and exploring critical VCAT decisions on the topic.

Participants also take a short walk, where the principles of neighbourhood character are further illustrated and discussed. The Session concludes with a class discussion, aided by images of new developments and streetscapes. The class discussion is joined by a local architect. It is an interactive and thought provoking session.
