URBAN DESIGN TRAINING PROGRAM 2013
The DPCD’s Urban Design Training Program offers courses that introduce planners and designers to the principles and methods of urban design, essential for the creation of liveable places.
The program which is delivered through PLANET (PLAnning NETwork) provides specific urban design modules to broaden the skills and knowledge of participants. Since its inception, more than 1,800 public and private sector built environment professionals from metropolitan Melbourne, regional Victoria and interstate have participated in the program.
This year the program is partnering with the Department of Justice to provide safer design training in Melbourne and regional Victoria.
