PolisPlan is a mobile consultancy of town planning and strategic engineering professionals that assists communities in the development of their village, town or urban environment to achieve economically, socially and environmentally sustainable outcomes.
Steven Liaros and Nilmini De Silva can assist you to develop locally applicable projects, document these in a masterplan and then navigate the town planning processes to achieve greater local resilience.
Working with local government, community groups or private developers we implement the principles of the circular economy, encompassing emerging ideas such as online sharing economy platforms, community renewable energy schemes, water sensitive urban design, 3D printing, cohousing, coworking and Transition Town principles. We plan for the integration of private housing with shared infrastructure and assets that serve the principal needs of the residents.
We also present our ideas through academic and creative writing as well as documentary photography. In August 2014 we published two books: Rethinking the City by Steven Liaros and Fate or Destiny by Nilmini De Silva.
