Welcome to The Planning Academy

arrowThe Planning Academy is about sharing planning knowledge to deliver better planning outcomes for people and places. We believe that the knowledge and experience of leading industry professionals can be shared to benefit our students, our profession and the community broadly.

We’re passionate about delivering courses that:

  • support planners with training as part of their ongoing professional development;
  • support businesses and organisational units in government to upskill their teams quickly in response to changing demands;
  • establish core competencies in development assessment for para-planners and allied professionals through accredited Diploma training delivered under the auspices of the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ);
  • explain planning - strategic planning and statutory planning - to councillors, industry groups, the community and others.
