President’s Award Planning Excellence 2009 Victorian Awards Award to: Central Goldfields Shire Council Project: Maryborough Urban Prospects This inspiring and entrepreneurial project involved the council purchasing four strategically located former education facilities which included heritage buildings and working with developers to deliver quality residential products, community facilities and local employment. The project illustrates how local governments can be catalyst for development whilst also meeting their community’s vision
Local Government In-house led Strategy, Project or Policy Initiative Award to: Central Goldfields Shire Council Project: Maryborough Urban Prospects outlines how a rural council seized an opportunity to transform a small town by creating employment opportunities, housing diversity, community facilities, economic growth, open spaces and community pride. Central Goldfields Shire Council took four redundant education sites totaling 11 hectares in strategic locations in the town of Maryborough, all with significant heritage buildings, and managed a process to ensure they were developed in a timely manner, for appropriate uses and with buildings of a fitting scale. Council worked with the community to formulate a vision for each of the sites in an Urban Design Framework study before taking on the substantial and risky responsibility of acquiring ownership of the sites from the State Government to package and reintroduce into the real estate market as a new attractive product.
