Success at the Planning Institute of Australia SA Awards

22nd November 2019
Commendation Award

On Friday 15 November 2019 Council was successful in receiving a Commendation Award in the Public Engagement and Community Planning category for the Strathalbyn District Centre Traffic, Parking and Streetscape Plan. This award recognises initiatives in best practice public engagement or community planning that achieve an outstanding and innovative contribution to enhance built form, planning processes and social outcomes.

The project was undertaken with consultants Jensen Plus and MR Cagney and set about developing a series of streetscape improvements designed to connect the main street precincts and to address walkability, amenity and wayfinding opportunities.

The outcomes of the plan were informed by a highly successful multi-day ‘immersion’ workshop, an open studio approach for passers-by and a temporary parklet was set up to engage with locals about making Strathalbyn a more attractive and successful town centre.
