Living Waterways Framework Pre Conference Workshop

The SPLASH Network in conjunction with WaterNSW and the Central West Councils Environment & Waterways Alliance, hosted the Living Waterways Framework Workshop at the Newcastle Conference and Exhibition Centre prior to the 2017 Stormwater NSW Conference, on Tuesday, 5th September.

About the Framework

The Living Waterways approach has been developed to support impementation of water sensitive urban design by encouraging and incentivising design solutions that embody all the elements of liveability, resilience, sustainability and productivity.

The approach is site-driven and aligns traditional stormwater principles with place-making benefits. A scoring system encourages innovation and improved design outcomes, while being flexible enough to cater for a variety of development types within the comunity.

This award winning framework is gaining momentum across the east coast of Australia. The Queensland Governmetn will embed the framework into its state planning policies. A number of local and state government organisations across Queensland and New South Wales are currently using the Framework as a means of designing an delivering multi-functional stormwater.
