Social Infrastructure Planning

About the SIG

Social infrastructure planning in Local Government has a distinct purpose and function while intersecting with many disciplines including: service planning, urban planning, social planning, asset management and capital works planning. The Social Infrastructure Planning Special Interest Group aims to:

  • Advance best practice social infrastructure planning in local government
  • Align the key functions of planning, developing and maintaining community facilities within Councils
  • Provide a forum for discussion, ideas sharing.

  •   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.
