How to become an urban planner in Brisbane

What is Town Planning?

Town planning, also known as urban planning or city planning, aims to create effective and sustainable places for everyone to live, work and enjoy.

Planners balance economic, environmental and social needs to help grow and create communities that work for everyone. It is a key factor in the success of large scale events like the Commonwealth Games and also important for tackling bigger social and political issues, such as housing shortages and climate change.

Planners work in a varying array of areas such as health, tourism, transport, energy, housing, leisure, communications and education. They’re an integral part of creating new spaces and conserving places of cultural significance to maintain our heritage.

Why do we need town planning?

Town planners hold it all together. We bring together all of the engineering, politics, social factors, economic factors, architecture, culture, and world issues to ensure that as the population grows, everyone is enjoying a high quality of life and standard of living.
