WEBINAR RECAP – Open Space Planners Network Relaunch

  • October 05, 2023

Thanks to all who joined us for the relaunch of the Open Space Planners Network (OSPN). The OSPN has been operating as an informal group of interested industry professionals and practitioners since 2007.  Established to provide open space planners and other allied professionals with access to a network of like-minded people, to share knowledge and resources, and advocate on issues impacting open space planning and provision. 

After being on hold during the pandemic we were proud to relaunch the network, meet with industry colleagues and explore recent research and projects in the open space sector including:

  • The Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action’s Guide for Open Space Strategies and Integrated Place Managment Framework
  • Macedon Ranges Shire Council’s Community Assembly for Open Space Strategy and their Romsey Ecotherapy Park project

A big thank you to everyone who attended, along with our presenters for their time and expertise. You can find the full webinar recording and other resources at the links below.
