Welcome to RAD 2015!
As you know Pittwater Council is moving towards Place Planning our
community spaces. Place planning is creating places where the community
want to live, connect and work.
This year, Council is developing a Place Plan for Mona Vale Town Centre
to assist Council understand the needs of our community of people and
businesses and guide the management of the centre over time. The Mona
Vale Place Plan will focus on the community’s connect to place.
Through place planning Council will aim to:
Create places designed for people
Attract the right uses to the right places
Provide a focal point for employment and new
forms of residential development
Improve connectivity in and around the centre,
especially for pedestrians
Recognise the importance of streets as
community spaces and destinations.
The development of this plan is taking place over the next 18 months
with Urban Talks, Interactive Workshops and Enliven events being held
during this time.
Whilst the Mona Vale Place Plan is the first, it will not be the last
as Council will apply this process across all villages and community
spaces in the future.
As this is an important step for Council, I thought it would be
productive for the RAD group to contribute to the place plan.
The first RAD session is on 21 March 2015 between 10am and 12pm.
The workshop will be conducted by John O’Callaghan. John is an urban
planner specialising in social activation, community engagement and new
media. He is passionate about positive behaviour change and making our
cities more liveable through creativity and innovation. I attach his
BIO for more information about him.
John will conduct an interactive session looking at place branding and

they will be of great quality and at an excellent price. We will let
