I was pleased to be the speaker and discussion leader at this Planning Institute of Australia WA (PIA) event, hosted and sponsored by Squire Sanders. The notes I used to lead the discussion can be found here. An article entitled Climate Change Law and the Real World , which I co-authored, with Professor Peter Newman is referenced in the notes and can be found here. It was a continuing education event and well attended by a strong body of town planners from the public and private sectors.
The event was video recorded and will soon be uploaded onto this website.
As is usually the case, the planners present were very responsive to the material and provided me with useful comments, some of which are noted at the end of the notes.
My thanks to the Chair of the event Chris Wark of Squire Sanders, Joel Gilman, the Chair of PIA’s Legal Chapter, who is responsible for the Programme and Emma de Jäger, PIA’s Executive Officer.
