There’s an interesting talk that will take place in Toronto next Wednesday, May 11th at the Design Exchange, at 234 Bay Street.
Organized by the PUG Awards, the panel discussion is titled Planning – A Building Challenge. Panelists will discuss the complex planning process that is required to allow large-scale developments to go ahead.
On the one hand, the process can be fraught with difficulty, giving rise to the need for consensus building strategies, a fact that we acknowledged in our talk at Construct Canada on collaborative planning and the art of negotiation.
On the other hand, the complexities of development make the planning process necessary. The panel is moderated by Stephen Diamond of Diamond Corp. and speakers include urban planner Paul Belford, David Bronskill, partner at Goodmans LLP whose practice focuses on municipal, planning and property tax, Howard Cohen of Context Development Inc and Ward 5 councilor Peter Milczyn.
