This unit will stimulate discussion on planning issues from government and community perspectives. It is designed to generate understanding as to how the skills of professional planners may contribute to social change. The unit will examine the coverage of planning and related topics such as housing, transport and the environment in contemporary media. The extent to which governments use planning and planning decision making as levers in economic and social development will be compared in Australian and international settings.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Understand how government use planning to promote economic growth and social change;
2. Critically analyze issues and demonstrate linkages within a broad societal context;
3. Identify community stakeholders and demonstrate different approaches to conflict resolution in planning; and
4. Understand how the media can influence government response to sensitive issues.
