Attendees will learn how to accurately utilise MUSIC in the assessment of development applications where Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) is required.

The course is a mix of presentations, Q&A and interactive sessions with topics tailored to your learning requirements. It is typically held in-house at the Council and the program is tailored to meet the specific needs of the Council both in terms of attendees and local policies.

What’s included?

  • Face-to-face training delivery tailored to suit your organisation and development assessment requirements
  • Training materials containing: user manual (online and downloadable), presentation notes and worked examples
  • Meals (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea)
  • Use of MUSIC software for the duration of the course (USB dongle) – view system requirements.

Who should attend

This course is specifically designed for local government planners, development asessors and stormwater engineers responsible for the design of council assets.

Why you should attend

  • Overview of WSUD – what it achieves, how it is integrated into developments, and trends with new technologies and science
  • Review of the WSUD design and assessment process and how music helps to achieve critical elements
  • The role of modelling guidelines – examples, interpretation in the assessment process and when deviations can be used.
  • Developing a music model – key issues and common errors in translation from initial site layout to delivering on-ground assets.
  • Interpreting music models and model outputs – correct results and how models should be reviewed against water quality targets and objectives.
  • Information requirements – how to submit modelling results and outcomes, plus common information requirements for development assessment.
  • Key WSUD assessment issues – what disciplines should be involved, how to assess compliance between music modelling and WSUD plans, plus other design issues.
