Neighbourhood Character: what you need to know

June 3, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


Neighbourhood character is one of the most contentious aspects of residential development planning. This course discusses the concept of neighbourhood character in the planning context and provides a clear framework for its assessment and analysis.

The course focuses on defining what neighbourhood character means in planning.

This course includes real life examples using photographs to show different neighbourhood character typologies and to discuss whether these examples ‘respect’ neighbourhood character. We will also discuss and analyse critical VCAT decisions.

The session concludes with a class discussion joined by Craig Czarny of Hansen Partnership.


Statutory planners in the public and private sector, architects and building designers, developers, solicitors and anyone engaged in the design or assessment of residential development.

Note: strategic planners who are preparing or reviewing neighbourhood character policies have also found this course useful.
