SQE315 Environmental Planning and Assessment

Depending upon the availability of speakers, this unit incorporates guest lectures from the Department of Primary Industries, coastal planners, municipal councils and Indigenous groups.

Last year the students also attended two public planning forums (voluntarily) held in Warrnambool. They are encouraged to participate in the planning process by attending such events.  Involvement does depend on what events are being held during the teaching semester.

Students also complete a field exercise and an assessment task based (21 KB) on real-life environmental and planning issues from south western Victoria.

Further information can be obtained from Dr Anne Wallis, Senior Lecturer, School of Life and Environmental Sciences, on extension 33150 or email anne.wallis@deakin.edu.au.

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
