2021 LUNCHTIME SESSION: Master Planning the Defence Estate

This Lunchtime session took place on Tuesday 16th Feb 2021, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm.

The New Zealand Defence Force have been engaged in a three year national programme of master planning for its camps and bases across Aotearoa.

Now reaching its conclusion the approach and outcomes will be of interest to anyone looking to bring forward people-centric work, living, learning places with an identity that make healthy, safe environments for their community of interest. With engaging, evidence based and transparent master planning that will ring true to all in local regional and central government, NZDF and their partners have both shown leadership in process and a strong basis for the investment logic for such a diverse estate.

Ian Ruscoe -

Ian trained as a Civil Engineer and has applied his skills to infrastructure management, project delivery and more recently strategic and spatial planning. Over the last 4 years Ian has led the New Zealand Defence Force's Estate Strategy Planning team’s approach to Master Planning to support the required Regeneration of the Defence Estate. His systems-thinking approach has led to multi-faceted outcomes to support engagement with wider stakeholder groups and decisions that support the broader Defence investment decisions in the Estate. Ian prides himself generating well-informed discussion to support decision making and discern opportunities in complex and challenging situations.

Marc Baily -

Marc is a specialist in his field with a combination of spatial design and statutory planning skill, training and experience. He has developed sound methodologies for understanding urban environments and the way in which people use them. This understanding provides a solid foundation on which to build development concepts or planning policy. Understanding when to engage a range of disciplines and interests that contribute to the way in which urban places adapt and change is one of Marc’s strengths. He is frequently engaged by his clients in a ‘master planning’ role to guide the multiple disciplines in urban projects. Experienced with both spatial design and the NZ statutory planning regime means he is very effective at the interface between development change, and the consent-ability or policy implications of that change. He has appeared at both Council and Environment Court hearings on many occasions
