If I create a project (C-c c and press 'p' for Project) in the
project.org file, I would like the project to automatically inherit a
few properties like: Purpose, Outcome, Todo's and also date when the
project was added to the list.

How can I configure my .emacs file to achieve this?

I currently have:

(setq org-capture-templates
       '(("t" "Todo" entry (file+headline "~/org/gtd.org" "Tasks")
              "** TODO %?\n  %i Added:%U")
         ("j" "Journal" entry (file+datetree "~/org/journal.org")
              "* %?\nEntered on %U\n  %i\n  %a")))

Also: I would be interested to see how others implement natural
planning model in org-mode (I am currently reading Charles Cave's
write-up on this)

I do something similar; I used to use a nearly full David Allen Natural Planning but now have simplified it and use the “As <personal role>, I want <goal> so <reason>” Mad-Libs style.

I have the following as my Project capture:

("P" "Proposed Project"
 entry (file "~/Documents/OrgMaster/org/refile.org")
 "* PROPOSED %?\n%U\n** Project Definition\n%U\n- Summary\n  + As <personal role>, I want <goal> so <reason>\n- Completion Criteria (Don't do too much)\n  + \n"
 :clock-in t :clock-resume t)

The key point is that you can put “\n” into the string for new lines, and spaces after the “\n” for indentation.
