|QELA's 2013 conference takes place from 22 to 24 May|
at the Sheraton Noosa Resort & Spa.
WOULDN’T IT BE NICE…?
As the global economy continues to soften and governments look for ways to encourage investment and development in a capital constrained world, the focus inevitably falls on regulation. That is, how to make it better, more efficient, less complicated etc...
Planning and environment regulation has gone uphill and down dale over the years in search of refinement and dare we say it... perfection. The Queensland government no doubt has its own vision of how a better, perhaps even perfect, planning and environment regulatory regime should look. We are now seeing its pursuit of reform on a regular basis.
‘Wouldn’t it be nice...?’ poses the question: what are the features of an excellent planning and environment regulatory system? And ‘excellent’ from whose perspective?
The program covers nine sessions over three days, including the poolside Holding Redlich Welcome Barbeque on Wednesday evening and the GROUNDWORK plus cocktail dinner on Thursday night.
Topics include planning reform, an examination of planning schemes, energy and resources, the natural and built environment, transport, infrastructure and major projects, and much more.
|KEYNOTE SPEAKER - BOB ANSETT|
Business entrepreneur, author and vice president of 'Friends of Noosa' will present the keynote address on Wednesday morning.
Full conference registration includes lunch, morning and afternoon tea where applicable, a conference bag and one ticket to the Holding Redlich Welcome Barbeque on Wednesday evening. Single day registrations are also available. Tickets to the GROUNDWORK plus cocktail dinner on Thursday night may be purchased for $100 each.
