Urban Design award for Grafton Precinct Plan

The Grafton Precinct project has won the 2022 AILA NSW Landscape Architecture Award Urban Design category at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) Awards.

The award was presented for the initial design phase of the Grafton Precinct Plan, which encompasses Clarence Valley Council’s trial changes in Prince St funded by the NSW Government’s $495,000 Streets As Shared Spaces grant.
Project consultant Harriet McKindlay from Fourfold Studio and Vee Design, who provided the photography and artistic impressions for the project, were the official entrants recognised at the awards.
“This project demonstrates the potential of landscape architecture to consider people and Grafton’s future with locals firmly at its heart,” the entry read. “Through this masterplan, the landscape architect has set a new standard for precinct planning both from a design and consultation perspective.”
