A community-led series of placemaking initiatives at a neighbourhood centre, a game changing level of transparency in infrastructure policy, and the transformation of underused public space into a vibrant hive of activity have been recognised at the first
ever Place Innovation Awards.
From 31 nominations, 3 winners were announced during the annual WA Local Government Association (WALGA) Local Futures Convention.
Congratulations to the winners for their innovative, collaborative approaches to placemaking in WA:
The Department of Local Government, Sport, and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) supported non-profit organisation Town Team Movement to administer the awards.
DLGSC has also funded Town Team Movement to deliver free placemaking training for all elected members and local government staff in Western Australia.
Through placemaking, local governments work holistically with local business, urban planners, residents, and local organisations to create positive change and vibrant spaces and help to develop a strong sense of community and belonging.
