A unique approach
Our approach to creating dynamic, authentic and sustainable places is illustrated in our Place Making Model. This business model is structured around our three key roles as a place manager, developer and planning regulator to maximise our capacity as the only government developer in Australia with all three functions in house.
The phases of our model
Our model sees the creation of places through five distinct phases which are influenced and enabled by external business drivers, strategic directions and corporate functions that support place making.
Evaluate new project areas that fit our model.
Determine the project vision, establish funding, regulatory and governance structures.
Establish the planning framework, statutory approvals, place making and planning strategies.
Implementation activities to successfully deliver the project and vision.
Functions, powers and responsibilities returned to Local and other government bodies.
Our roles in the process
Place Management ProcessEnsures that our assets, including properties and public realm under our management achieve the redevelopment area objectives.This process may include the delivery of Place Plans, Commercial, Public Art, and Place Activation strategies, leasing and activation.
Development ProcessUndertakes strategic land use planning and enables delivery of the redevelopment area objectives through project planning, works and land sales.This process may involve land assembly, statutory approvals, asset management planning, development of Master Plans, sales, works programs and more.
Regulatory ProcessEnables the redevelopment area objectives through land use and statutory planning controls. This process sees the establishment of boundaries, planning policies, design guidelines, heritage inventories, and oversees development application and subdivision assessments.
