Dawson James understands the balance between integrated infrastructure provision and land use planning, as well as the complex requirements for infrastructure funding and planning. For example:
At the Growth Centres Commission:
- oversaw the development of state and local infrastructure plans
- negotiated with local government and state agencies on cost and rollout and the sequencing of land release to provide land to market as quickly as possible with the most efficient rollout of government infrastructure
- oversaw the design of the State Infrastructure Contribution including a works in kind model to allow the private sector to provide infrastructure.
In other major urban renewal projects:
provided strategic advice and negotiated the implementation of urban infrastructure in major projects such as West Dapto and Honeysuckle, and master-planned developments such as Forest Lake and Kings Hill.
