Jury comment

The Batemans Bay Waterfront Master Plan and Activation Strategy brought council and community together to envisage alternativ­e solutions for the waterfront. The landscape architect has thoroughly considered funding and policy strategies, and has served as facilitato­r, champion of community ideas and driver of action plans for the work. The project included multiple workshops with council and business leaders, and “walk and talk” events with the wider community and shop owners that aimed to illustrate the potential of a foreshore transforma­tion. The value of the landscape architect’s role in offering fresh angles on a site’s potential that challenge perception­s is evident here. This work has led to a proposal that addresses both healthy lifestyles and environmen­tal upgrades. The design draws on local knowledge to develop an inclusive and wonderfull­y activated foreshore with significan­t amenity.
