ANZAPS 2018

1 – 3 November 2018 University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand

The Environmental Planning Programme at the University of Waikato welcomes you to ANZAPS 2018.

The University campus is in Hamilton/Kirikiriroa, around 4km from the city centre. The city is located in the centre of the North Island in the Waikato region of Aotearoa/New Zealand. It is renowned as one of the most connected in New Zealand, being a 90 minute drive away from Auckland, around 60 minutes from either coast, with many attractions nearby.

Conference theme: Decisions, Decisions.

Decisions are at the heart of planning – from development applications or the content of strategic plans, to evidence bases and community outcomes, to pedagogical choices and directions, and essentially, to the entire remit and role of the profession. Some decisions affecting planning will also take place largely beyond the discipline, as we have seen in recent debates concerning planning reform. Planners may also unfairly shoulder responsibility for unpopular decisions that may be a function of limited powers and policy, as we may see particularly in the political or media spheres.

This year’s conference theme invites research and discussions on this important topic to help inform debates concerning research, education, and the position of the profession more generally.
