WGV Wins Two PIA Awards for Planning Excellence

The Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) Awards for Planning Excellence 2015 Western Australia were held last night and the White Gum Valley Development won two awards. The Minster’s Award and the Best Planning Ideas – Small Project. Well done to LANDCORP, CODA and URBIS.

WGV exemplifies a unique urban infill project that was achieved through the collaboration between a developer, local government
and the community. The judges believe that the project is an excellent example of extending beyond current subdivisional
and development practices,creating a best practice blueprint for other infill sites.

The project is commended for its ability to demonstrate the economic, environmental and
social benefits of sustainable development. It provides a range of affordable and
inclusive living options, incorporates elements of the natural environment and
retains a connection with the sense of place for the existing local community.

All this is achieved whilst transitioning to a contemporary urban form.
