Social Infrastructure Planning

About the SIG

Community facilities are vital for service delivery, place-making and social interaction. They offer a space for people to meet and participate in community life, enliven neighbourhoods and support positive health and wellbeing outcomes.

This SIG explores how we plan and deliver community facilities in 20 minute neighbourhoods, providing for a community needs and enabling local living. We'll hear from expert practitioners and bring our collective wisdom to mini workshops on topics decided by you.

Please join us for this inaugural LGPro Social Infrastructure Planning Special Interest Group forum.

  Online Community

This SIG is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved in the SIG and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other SIG resources will also be posted on the online community.
