The Blueprint

The Z-NET Blueprint is the model created for towns and villages to be able to assess and design their Z-NET plan. It sets out the approach taken, the logic and principles applied in assessing options and the framework used for developing the implementation plan.

Creation of the Z-NET Blueprint was funded by the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage.

The Z-NET Blueprint was developed at the same time as creating a plan for Uralla – the Z-Net Case Study Town.

This approach has given the model a very practical and ‘real world’ grounding, and includes a business case assessment to quantify the costs, benefits, opportunities and risks of the various options available.

The Uralla Case Study can give you a clearer sense of how Z-NET might work for your community.
