The project won the first place in the category of Planning Excellence.
According to the judges: “This is a good example of an international project strongly led by planning to deliver positive environmental and health improvement outcomes in the quality of life for residents. It has a complex context, engaging with the community and building confidence, stability and investment in the area.”
