Is this the future you want to see?
What the government's new Planning reforms will permit as a right
Desired Future Character in Images
Most people can't begin to understand the Government's planning documents for the new Tasmanian Planning Scheme—they're several hundred pages long, full of technical jargon, and without a single image to help people understand what's being said. Yet "a picture paints a thousand words" and everyone can understand pictures. Photos and images can be used to illustrate and communicate numerous planning ideas and concepts. A compilation of images can provide an excellent starting point for meaningful conversations between communities and government planners at all levels, about the desired (and undesired) future character of local areas and the places people care about. As an example, the following images and words capture some of things that residents of the Blackmans Bay/Kingston area of Hobart value about living in their area and want to see captured through future character statements in strategic planning documents.
