Clarence City Council wins planning award

Clarence City Council has been recognised for its role in two major planning projects at the prestigious 2023 Awards for Planning Excellence Tasmania.

The Council, in partnership with Milangkani projects, was awarded the Planning with Country award for the takara limuna trail at Bedlam Walls, Geilston Bay. The joint project is an immersive truth-telling experience, sharing the story of the area’s Aboriginal culture and history.

Through track design, locally commissioned artworks, oral recordings and written words in palawa kani, walkers learn of the ancient traditions of the Mumirimina people as they trail along the serene headland.

In partnership with Niche Studio and Entura, Clarence City Council was also recognised for outstanding community engagement in the consultation for Seven Mile Beach Local Area Plan, winning the Stakeholder Engagement award.

The project was commended for its best practice approach to stakeholder engagement and demonstrated adaptability in achieving meaningful engagement.

Clarence Mayor Brendan Blomeley said the awards highlighted some of the exceptional work of the people in our city.

“These awards really emphasise how well our community work together to achieve great things,” Mayor Blomeley said.

“The dedication to excellence in this community is exceptional and I am honoured that council has been part of these fantastic initiatives that really benefit our growing community.”

Award winners now progress to the National Awards, to be announced in 2024.
