CAN Portfolio group for development of CAN policies and providing technical (planning/design) advice

This group is for the development of CAN policies on various topics and providing technical (planning/design) advice to members and others.

This group work includes policy creation (framework already exists and several policies have been finalised), technical advice and discussion, legal advice and urban design assistance.

In order to edit a policy or create a new one, however, you will need special privileges. If you want to do that, please send a message to the CAN Policy Development Coordinator (email
