Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) has recently released Planning and engineering guidance for potentially liquefaction-prone land. The guidance has been developed collaboratively by MBIE with the Ministry for the Environment (MfE) and the Earthquake Commission (EQC), along with a number of other parties.
NZPI and IPENZ are running a series of interactive courses which will bring planning and engineering professionals together to learn how to put the guidance into practice.
Courses will be taking place:
• 08 Nov 2017, Tauranga
• 10 Nov 2017, Wellington
• 13 Nov 2017, Christchurch
• 15 Nov 2017, Hamilton
• 22 Nov 2017, Auckland
PRESENTERS | Marje Russ & Mike Jacka
This guidance is targeted at regional and local government agencies, and those who advise them on land use planning, resource consenting and building consenting. It has drawn on the extensive experience that has resulted from the Canterbury Earthquake Sequence (CES). It is relevant to many other New Zealand urban centres which are developed on coastal or river plains with soil types that are susceptible to liquefaction.
A key message from the guidance is that planners and engineers need to work together to develop a robust risk-based process to manage liquefaction-related risk in land use planning and development decision-making. In the spirit of this cross-discipline collaboration,
The purpose of the professional development course is to introduce engineers and planners to the guidance document and provide them with knowledge and skills to implement the guidance effectively. Specific objectives include:
The one-day programme will start with some basic presentation sessions to introduce and overview the guidance. It will then progress to hands on group work to develop understanding of the technical assessment process and its application to planning and decision making; and to develop the collaborative skills, experience and cross-discipline networks required to implement the guidance effectively in different decision-making contexts.
After the course it is expected that:
