Planning outcomes are influenced and shaped by a range of policy instruments.  The introduction of spatial planning into the legislation for the new Auckland Council marks a further journey towards a greater role for public policy in planning at a strategic level.  This seminar is designed to look at the range of instruments that planners should be using in the delivery of planning outcomes, including future spatial plans.

The seminar starts with a ‘top down’ view from a CEO in the public sector, and an Executive Director of a large private sector organisation, both with professional backgrounds in planning.  Experienced practitioners from related fields will outline the range of instruments that can, and should be utilised by planners to deliver outcomes.  These include Long Term Plans, rating systems, financial and development contributions, asset management planning and the like.

The afternoon will cover spatial planning, followed by a panel discussion of selected audience members on the learnings of the day.

Who should attend?
The seminar is designed for planning and allied professionals of intermediate to senior experience, from the full range of backgrounds within the professions.

What you will learn
You will learn from senior practitioners the range of mechanisms that can, and should be utilised in forming and shaping communities.  You will be exposed to how these mechanisms impact on the delivery of planning outcomes.  The seminar will equip you with a broad understanding of the many tools at your disposal - "Twenty Ways" to achieve your (planning) goals.

Programme –
9am – 9.15am Opening MC: Leigh Auton, Director, Auton & Associates

9.15am - 10.45am CEO’s Perspective on Planning – the range of instruments
                        Two perspectives

  • Jim Harland, CEO Dunedin City Council
  • Don Lyon, Executive Director Beca and Managing Director Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner Ltd


There are a range of mechanisms by which the aspirations of communities are identified and delivered.  This session will explore these mechanisms from the perspective of two CEOs with professional backgrounds in planning.  Content will include an explanation of Community Outcomes, integration of Council Strategic Plans (eg Three Waters, Park Strategies, Transport Plan, Social Plans).  Critically, the question explored is how to bring them all together – how do you prioritise?

10.45am - 11.15am Morning Tea

11.15am – 12.15pm The Balance Sheet – what planners need to know

  • Dave Foster, Director Finance, Manukau City Council.  Formerly Office of the Auditor General, with overview of Council LTCCPs.


Dave will explore the importance of the Balance Sheet in determining planning outcomes, including Long Term Plans, the role of rating and differentials, Development and Financial Contributions, and Depreciation Funding.

12.15pm – 12.45pm Asset management plans – their role in delivering planning outcomes.

  • Paul Wells-Green & Graeme Roberts, Beca


Asset Management Plans such as for Transport, Parks, Property, Water and Waste Water, Stormwater and Heritage are essential mechanisms in the delivery of community assets.  They determine priorities and specify levels of service.  This session will explore the reasons why Planners need to be involved.

12.45pm - 1.15pm Planning and Investing for Outcomes - linking transport, land use and investment Planning

  • Dougal List, Acting National Planning Manager, NZTA


Integrated planning brings together land use, transport and investment planning.  This session will explore the lessons that NZTA has learnt from developing its Integrated Planning Strategy and how it is looking to apply this strategy to optimising the benefits of the Roads of National Significance, moving from funding outputs to planning for and investing in outcomes, and why planners need to work beyond the RMA to deliver the places they want.

1.15pm – 2.15pm Lunch

2.15pm – 3.15pm Spatial Planning and links to other plans

  • Ree Anderson, Manager Regional Strategy, Community and Cultural Policy, Auckland Council
  • Lee Beattie, Lecturer, School of Architecture and Planning, University of Auckland


Spatial Planning, provided for in the legislation for the new Auckland Council, confirms a significant role for public policy in planning at a strategic level.  Likewise it provides, at the local levels, the opportunity to shape places in a coherent manner through Local Board Plans.  This session will explore this exciting opportunity for planners and will link the learnings of earlier speakers to the spatial plan concept.

3.15pm – 4pm Panel Session

4pm – 4.15pm Concluding Remarks
