Description

WORKSHOP FOR ALL PLANNING CONSULTANTS AND DEVELOPERS

Frankston City Council is committed to improving the water quality in major waterways, reducing flooding issues and improving water conservation. Urban development impacts on the natural water cycle by creating impervious surfaces that affect the quantity and quality of stormwater. In Frankston City Council, stormwater runoff is discharged directly to Port Phillip Bay and via our system of creeks. Stormwater runoff and pollutants are detrimental to these waterways. Water sensitive urban design mitigates these impacts while reducing water bills and creating greener urban areas.

We would like to invite all planning consultants and developers to attend a free workshop aimed to assist in the implementation of sustainable water management within future development projects in order to achieve better stormwater management planning responses.

Ian Adams, a certified assessor and trainer for the Green Building Council of Australia, will be leading the presentation and discussion on the following:

  • Introduction to Frankston City Council Municipal Strategic Statement, Victorian Planning Provisions and Local Planning Policies within the Planning Scheme that support and require stormwater sustainability assessment of applications;
  • Introduction to WSUD best practices on development sites and the fundamental principles of stormwater management and ways to utilise stormwater;
  • Understanding what information is required and how to prepare an acceptable stormwater management response to be submitted to Council to satisfy the WSUD requirements; and
  • Knowing how to use sustainable design assessment tools.

If you have any queries please contact Nathalie Nunn, Environmental Planner (Nathalie.nunn@frankston.vic.gov.au)
