Development, Planning and Regulation


Head of Development, Planning and Regulation – Glenn Bunny

This cluster champions sustainable development and planning services critical to the economic vibrancy and values of the City. It also improves the quality of regulation, and where possible, limits the burden of regulation on local businesses and residents.

Through engagement and collaboration, and by balancing the expectations of developers and the wider community, it adopts innovative, effective and efficient service improvements.

Underpinned by a comprehensive risk-based decision-making framework, teams within this cluster strive to break down legislative barriers to deliver the City's vision and steer investment to get the best outcomes for the community.

Collaborating with peers and streamlining processes are core to our work. This unique approach encourages a more responsive and transparent organisation, capable of focusing development and compliance resources and support where they are needed most.
