Do you have an interest in planning policy?

Do you want to be involved in the planning reform of our State? Do you enjoy writing a good submission and do you want to do more for your profession? The PIA Tasmania Committee is calling for interest to join the Policy Sub-Committee, to build on the progress made in 2016.

The Policy Sub-Committee anticipates a very active 2017, with the State Planning Provisions Report expected to soon be declared, formulation of strategy, reform in the lead up to the 2018 election, and to advocate for the role of good planning and the planning profession in the economic development of the State. Whether you have one hour or twenty hours to contribute, we have a role for you.

The Policy Sub-Committee seeks interest for:

Permanent members of the sub-committee to drive the policy and advocacy strategy for PIA Tasmania; and Members with expertise in specialist areas: transport planning; urban design; environmental management; building and plumbing; natural hazards; fire management; or general planning skills to join our policy register.

The permanent role on the sub-committee will need to be able to attend informal meetings in order to settle on strategy, divide work and prepare submissions.

The register will simply put your name on a list of people to be contacted should a policy submission relate to your area of expertise. You will only be asked to contribute where policy submissions relate to your field of expertise. It will be entirely at your discretion whether you have capacity to assist.

Terms of Reference for the Policy & Advocacy Sub-Committee can be found here.

For any questions about what this role involves or to express your interest, please contact Nicole Sommer, Chair of the PIA Policy Sub-Committee at Nicole.Sommer@doma.com.au or on 0437 284 909. You can also contact any member of the PIA Tasmanian Committee or the secretariat at tas@planning.org.au.
