PlanningxChange Broadcast 23 with Colleen Peterson

PlanningxChange Broadcast 23 with Colleen Peterson

In PX23, Jess Noonan and Peter Jewell interview planning consultant Colleen Peterson. When highly restrictive residential zones were being prepared by the State Government of Victoria, Colleen was the leading advocate in the charge to have them abandoned. In this PX interview Colleen is asked about the ethical questions town planners face and the difficulties both for an individual and a company in taking a stance against Government directives. She also talks about the pressures imposed by modern communications and the blurring of work and homelife. Topics also covered are the failure of planning policies to provide for reasonable housing options and costs. A refreshing and frank discussion about contemporary planning practice. This is the first PX interview for 2017. Music: Intro - 'Walk right up' Ladi6. Midbreak - 'Red Light' Gigamesh. Outro - 'Love Again' Gamma (Feat. Chelsea). Podcast released 2 March 2017.
