Town Planning involves both control of existing and new development, and “strategic planning” to ensure our resources are carefully managed to match our future needs and expectations.
Planning is a dynamic process that is constantly evolving in response to changes within the community.
Town Planners develop strategies and design the communities in which we live, work and play. Balancing the built and natural environment, community needs, cultural significance, and economic sustainability, planners aim to improve our quality of life and create vibrant communities.
As cities and town continue to grow in terms of size and population, planners are in increasing demand to manage these changes.
They frequently work with other professionals such as engineers, architects, building surveyors, economists, developers, politicians, scientists and environmental scientists.
