What you've told us
I think all economic discussions should be framed by the circular economy principles to “Design out Waste, Keep resources in use, and Regenerate natural systems.” We should plan towards the need for all residents to transition into lifestyles which involve lower energy use. These principles can assist with planning e.g. if we plan for reduced car use (because in the near future car ownership may be shared, or people will book the use of a car when they need one) then it makes sense for the CBD to become a shared space, with no through traffic, and for development applications, or infill housing, to need fewer car parking spaces to be provided. Rather than being reactionary, GDC can provide proactive leadership to assist in the required transition towards a low carbon, low energy, regenerative economy, through thoughtful planning.
