This came after a regional think tank toured the city this week to see how it was employingsustainable urban planning,City of Greater Bendigo strategy managerTrevor Budge said.

“They had the opportunity to meet anywhere in Australia,”MrBudge said.

“They deliberately choseBendigo and central Victoria because they heard about the great things that are happeninghere in terms of economic development, urban design and how arts and culture arerejuvenating the city,”

More than 30 members of theAustralianChapter of the Eastern Regional Organisation for Planning and Human Settlements (EAROPH) – a think tankwhich encourages excellence in planning and development –visited the Ulumbarra Theatre,theBendigo Art Gallery and new housing developments on Friday.

The case studies from Bendigo will inform the United Nation’s Habitat III Conference to be heldin Ecuador in October. The conference is held every 20 years and offers a unique opportunity todiscuss the challenge of how cities, towns and villages are planned and managed.

Afterwards theyheld a forum on housing and the role of local government and urban design, CBDregeneration and the role of arts and culture in Bendigo’s economic development,EAROPH presidentJane Stanley said.

“We’re interested in what is involved in building a regional economy that’s not connected to a big city metropolis,” Ms Stanely said.

“We’re going to look at Harcourt and Casltemaine and Bendigo as the three levels of hierachy and we’ll be looking at what the strengths of each economy are and how they can work together to build a regional economy.”

EAROPH will issue a report on howthe threecommunities can work together for mutualbenefit in coming weeks.They will then take their findings to theUN’s Habitat III Conference to be heldin Ecuador in October.

The global planning conference is held every 20 years.
