Planners Shape The World And Communities In Which We Live And Interact

At the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) we believe that good planning has the power to improve people’s lives. We live this by advocating for good planning to decision makers and demonstrating how planning can achieve a positive difference to people’s lives and their communities.


PIA nurtures and supports the development of high-quality planning professionals through education and comprehensive professional development so that they can deliver good planning outcomes. PIA is the national voice for planning and the planning profession with over 5,200 members nationally.
