TPG has recently expanded our services to incorporate a strengthened urban design capability with the objective of facilitating greater alignment between design, planning, project feasibility and the aspirations and expectations of stakeholders and the community.
With the capacity to tailor a seamless multidisciplinary team that incorporates a strong urban design skill set, we are now able to better ensure our client's visions are carried through all stages of the regulatory process.
This is particularly important with NSW planning reforms proposing a major shift towards a strategic approach to planning that involves a higher degree of community input up-front. After implementation, we can expect Local and State Government to commence a rollout of new strategic plans that seek to provide greater clarity regarding development controls outcomes across the State. This will be a major change from the current merit based system and a positive move by the State government to establish a clear vision for growth in urban and regional NSW.
Our Principal Urban Design and Place Development, Sonny Embleton, has recently joined TPG Sydney having relocated from our WA office. Throughout his career, he developed an in-depth understanding of working within Western Australian strategic-based planning systems, similar to that proposed within NSW’s White Paper planning reforms. He coordinates TPG NSW’s urban design and strategic planning team and is experienced in coordinating the delivery of broad scale strategic plans that align the regulatory framework with place-based development outcomes.
Our urban design team understands the importance of the relationship between built form, the public realm and importantly, people. This is essential to delivering quality developments, gaining community and stakeholder buy in, along with de-risking both public and private investment. This additional capacity will provide you with a one-stop service to assist in delivering your project. Read more about Sonny's expertise.
