12 Apr Better Placed – An integrated design policy for the built environment of New South Wales
Simon McPherson of Global South authored the consultation draft, and contributed to the final version of this comprehensive and ground-breaking policy, through collaboration with the NSW Office of the Government Architect.
The work involved research of national and international precedents, formulating the document structure and thematic focus areas, and drafting of the full document.
We are now involved in developing a comprehensive Design Guide to support the implementation of Better Placed, and developing strategies and methods for policy evaluation and monitoring, to allow measurement of its impact over time.
Better Placed was recently launched by The Hon. Anthony Roberts MP, NSW Minister for Planning, Minister for Housing, and Special Minister of State, and can be found here.
