A perennial issue for property development professionals is getting timely approvals for their projects - it can often be the difference to whether a project stacks up. This course will assist in better understanding how government authorities who approve developments operate and their particular responsibilities. UDIA members who have successfully worked with Government will also share their insights on how best to effectively and efficiently deal with government. 

In this course you will learn:

  • How organisations like UDIA influence government policy and how you can contribute to these discussions
  • From practitioners in the industry as to how they achieve successful outcomes when dealing with government
  • How organisations like the Department of Planning and Greater Sydney Commission operate, and their responsibilities and approval processes for development
  • The role of local government in development and how to use the process to get a speedy development approval
  • To understand the procedures and protocols which govern professional and ethical behaviour in the urban development industry

Who should attend this course 

Anyone involved in development of property, including management, development managers, consultants, lawyers, real estate agents, and those new to the property industry in NSW.
