Description

Development assessment is the process of evaluating the extent to which a proposal for development complies with the objectives and provisions of a statutory planning instrument such as a Local Plan or Planning Scheme. This subject introduces students to the development assessment process from two perspectives: that of the developer/proponent and that of the consent authority. Through practical exercises, usually within the Queensland planning system, the subject addresses development assessment matters relevant to planning and development activity in various jurisdictions. This subject will be beneficial to students intending to work in planning, design, property, and other professions related to the built and natural environments.
