The Brabham action learning partnership is an initiative of the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) and its WA partners. It is one of a number of case studies being undertaken as part of a national project addressing integrated urban and water planning to guide water sensitive urban development outcomes (IRP3). The Brabham case study seeks to explore the opportunity presented by the Brabham site to influence and navigate the planning approvals process to deliver sustainable and liveable communities. It will focus on optimising collaboration with key stakeholders to facilitate innovative integrated water solutions in the northeast growth corridor.

This workshop was the first of several planned to facilitate a collaborative approach to resolving challenges around approvals processes, financing and ongoing management of new assets. Its purpose was to:

  • collectively validate the technical and policy issues related to the proposed innovative water solutions for Brabham and explore one of the key issues in more detail; and
  • outline next steps to resolve identified issues.

The workshop was held in two sessions. The morning session allowed broad discussion of the key water-related issues for the development. This provided support for a more detailed consideration of one of the key issues in the afternoon session.
