The Broome North Project was the recipient of the ‘Hard Won Victory’ prize at the recent Planning Institute of Australia (WA) Awards. Roberts Day for Landcorp accepted the award in conjunction with CODA, Creating Communities, GHD Australia, ICS Group, Sinclair Knight Merz & Whelans.
In awarding the prize the Judging Panel said of the project,
‘The level of consultation with the community and the partnership formed between local government and LandCorp are commendable, as is the development of locally relevant form based codes.
The project outputs addressed not only the traditional planning approval requirements, but also embraced the need to deliver affordable housing in a sensitive environment such as Roebuck Bay, together with challenging climatic conditions.
The Judging Panel recognises the resources and level of commitment by all stakeholders to deliver this project within the timeframe.’
