We are always excited to get feedback from our students and colleagues on the Master Classes and Industry Briefings and Workshops:

Dr Drane’s masterclass on dynamic dormancy in mixed use areas was very useful in helping Councils to better understand the continuously evolving trading ecologies of growing cities. The masterclass offered practical insights for how Councils can manage mixed-use zones through existing frameworks, and garner the best community outcomes from such developments.
