Planning is about creating good outcomes for communities. It is a challenge but planning can produce good outcomes to ensure a sustainable environment is created for current and future generations.
Planning improves the overall well being of people and communities by creating more accessible, equitable, healthy, efficient, and attractive places to live, work, learn and play.
GOOD PLANNING CAN ALSO:
- create communities that offer better choices for where and how people live
- ensure adequate housing and services are provided
- make sure that future generations are given realistic and fair opportunities
- assist the community, governments and private sector to envision the direction in which their community wants to grow and develop.
