    Following in the theme of disaster planning (started here), the PIA together with the Federal and QLD Governments, recently released an amazing (free) array of resources on the topics of wildfire and flood risk mitigation through better land use planning practice. Many of these resources have been put together by the top academics and/or practitioners in their respective fields of expertise. I thoroughly recommend them to you:

    *** NEWS FLASH ***

    Trevor Budge to join City as Strategy Manager

    Friday 20 September 2013

    La Trobe University Associate Professor Trevor Budge has been appointed as the City of Greater Bendigo’s Strategy Manager.

    Mr Budge is well-respected in Bendigo and Victoria and has served on planning panels for the State Government and as President of the Victorian Division of the Planning Institute of Australia.

    He is currently Head of the award-winning Community Planning and Development Program and Campus Coordinator for the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at La Trobe’s Bendigo campus. He is also a Member of the General Division Order of Australia for service to town planning, particularly the development of regional and rural communities in Victoria.

    Director of Planning and Development Prue Mansfield described Mr Budge’s appointment as Strategy Manager as a coup for the City of Greater Bendigo.

    “Trevor is highly respected in state and local government circles and across the private sector as a professional planner and planning academic,” Ms Mansfield said.

    “He has played a pivotal role in assisting regional centres such as Bendigo, Ballarat, Shepparton, Warrnambool, Launceston, Mildura, Traralgon, Burnie and Wodonga to plan for their future growth and development.

    “His knowledge and skills will be of enormous benefit to the City of Greater Bendigo as we continue to plan for our future.”

    As Strategy Manager, Mr Budge will ensure that the City considers social, environmental and economic issues when planning for the future. He will be responsible for the Council Plan and strategies such as Connecting Greater Bendigo – the Integrated Transport and Land Use Strategy, and the review of the Residential Strategy.

    Mr Budge said he was looking forward to taking on the role.

    “Everyone knows Greater Bendigo is one of the best places to live and work in Australia,” he said.

    “The key challenge is to put the right plans in place now to ensure we can continue to be so as our population grows to a projected 145,000 by 2031.

    “The role of Strategy Manager is pivotal to building Bendigo as a premier regional city in Australia.”

    Mr Budge will maintain his close links with La Trobe University.

    'Both kinds of country'

    'Beyond the Edge: Australia's First Peri-urban Conference':

    https://www.latrobe.edu.au/periurban

    Trevor Budge with Libby Price on ABC Radio discussing peri-urban planning issues in an around Australia's regional towns and urban centres:

    An academic says planning regulations aren't keeping up with the population shift from large metropolitan areas to the outskirts of country towns.

    Trevor Budge, of La Trobe University, says regional councils around Australia are struggling to manage the large numbers of new residents, who move and commute, or retire to peri-urban areas - the country areas on the fringes of town.

    Associate Professor Budge says trying to apply the same planning laws to multiple towns doesn't work, because towns have very different character and needs.

    "I'm very concerned about government policy that you say well, this is a group of towns, they're all the same, the same typology exists here, we'll apply the same process," Professor Budge said.

    "You need to understand the story of each town, you need to understand the community 'vibe' that's there, to really understand what perhaps the policies and practice of government might be in each of these communities."

    Yeah, we're very lucky to have him, both at the uni and at the City. The future looks a bit brighter with Budgie on board.
