Integran’s Director Jason Natoli presented on behalf of #QELA last night at the Infrastructure Development and Charging seminar. He was joined by industry experts Kelly Alcorn and Matthew Fritzsche to discuss key areas such as:
– The LGIP planning process and how this relates to the land use planning process, including State and local drivers;
– Conversion applications, conversion criteria and the alignment between the LGIP and the planning scheme;
– Infrastructure costing, infrastructure charges and offsets; and
– Challenges arising where planning expectations are misaligned with LGIP assumptions; conversion criteria resulting in ‘big’ infrastructure being classified as ‘non-trunk’
Each of the speakers shared their insights on providing transparent, evidence based regulation for the delivery of infrastructure as one of the key elements in supporting a sustainable property market. The rapid growth of Australian cities requires a coordinated approach to land use planning, infrastructure and investment within an aligned vision for the future as highlighted by Mr Natoli last night.
