WHO WROTE THE URBAN DESIGN PROTOCOL?
Creating Places for People is a collaborative commitment to best practice urban design in Australia. The protocol is the result of two years of collaboration between peak community and industry organisations, States, Territories, Local Governments, and the Australian Government.
A wide range of organisations have contributed to the development of the Protocol over the course of two years, and have strongly affirmed their support for this document as an initiative facilitated by the Commonwealth Government:
- The Planning Officials Group initiated the idea five years ago and, in 2009, the Major Cities Unit along with the Planning Institute of Australia and City of Melbourne took up the challenge
- An Editorial Board of around fifty people was established, which includes State Government Architects, representatives of State planning departments, representatives from the Australian Local Government Association and each of the capital cities, the Heart Foundation, Preventative Health Taskforce, peak industry and professional bodies, and academics
- More than 500 people contributed to the document, including through a public consultation process and workshops around the country.
CHAMPIONS OF THE URBAN DESIGN PROTOCOL
Already nearly 50 Australian organisations have pledged to be champions of the urban design protocol. The actions that we all take will, together, make a significant difference to the quality of our towns and cities. We encourage others to become champions as well.
