We’re honoured to be part of a team which has won a Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) 2020 National Award for Planning Excellence for our work on The Spit Master Plan https://www.planning.org.au/awards/awards-for-planning-excellence-2

We’re sharing the Award for Public Engagement and Community Planning for The Spit Master Plan with our colleagues in the Department of State Development, Innovation and Tourism, City of Gold Coast, Articulous, John Gaskell Planning Consultants, Deicke Richards and ASPECT studios.

The judging panel noted the strong engagement and collaboration which featured throughout the development of The Spit Master Plan.

This is the second time the consultation undertaken for The Spit Master Plan has been recognised, with the team picking up an award from the Queensland chapter of the PIA in 2019.

We wouldn’t have achieved this without the ongoing support and engagement from the community members who are committed to working with us to bring the Spit Master Plan to life!

If you’ve been to the Spit lately you may have seen work progressing on the two projects we’re delivering as part of The Spit Master Plan implementation – the Seaway Promenade and the Moondarewa Spit Foreshore Improvements. We’re looking forward to finishing these in time for the Christmas holidays and opening them up for locals and visitors to enjoy.
