We recently brought together our Newcastle and Sydney offices for our annual Team Day. The day allowed us to reflect on the past years achievement, and refocus on the core values of Barr Planning as we discuss our team goals, objectives, and challenges for the year ahead.
Staff were also invited to showcase their individual learnings and practice their speaking skills by presenting on a diverse range of topics including biodiversity, assessment of digital signage and Land and Environment Court planning principles.
Further to discussing the business, the team took time out of the day to ‘look up’ and visit some key development sites including Honeysuckle and the East End Newcastle. Despite the rain the site visit enabled the team to gain insight into how site-specific characteristics shape the opportunities and constraints of a proposed development, within a local and practical context.
