Planning for Buffer Areas
April 29, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm$300
A central principle of land use planning is to separate conflicting land uses. How does our planning system achieve this and what happens when incompatible land uses get to close?
Planning approaches to managing the interface between uses with adverse amenity, health or safety potential and sensitive uses can be varied, complex and lead to inconsistent decision-making.
In this half day seminar, we will outline the planning context for uses like industry and infrastructure with adverse amenity, health and safety potential and how the planning system seeks to protect these uses and the community.
We will provide an overview of the risks of poor planning and how to provide for best practice approaches to buffer and land use management within planning schemes. We will examine what planning tools are available to protect and manage buffer areas and how each tool should be applied.
