Winner: 2018 Planning Institute of Australia (Qld) Awards - Best Planning Ideas – Large Project

2018 PIA Award

“The Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan is an outstanding planning document that clearly exemplifies a large scale project. The panel felt that the project demonstrated originality, innovation, transferability and excellent engagement. This project acknowledges a clear distinction in areas that are included in the master plan which speaks to its transferability and innovation. Building on the hard work and commitment of waterway catchment groups, local councils, state and federal governments, this project has taken the master plan from just a plan to a tangible waterway catchment revitalisation project. The clarity provided in the master plan on the project and implementation steps sets this project above and beyond expectations with a 20 year delivery timeline and revenue generating delivery model.”

Commendation: 2019 Office of Queensland Government, Minister’s Award for Urban Design

Qld Ministers Award

“The Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan is an important and ambitious vision that is set to revitalise approximately 20 kilometres of the Oxley Creek corridor into a leading greenspace, lifestyle and leisure destination with a focus on sustainability. The project, facilitated by Oxley Creek Transformation Pty Ltd as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brisbane City Council, establishes a comprehensive framework for the long-term revitalisation of a major regional waterway. The project creates a significant new recreation asset while enhancing essential biodiversity values, natural waterway processes and regional habitat corridors.

The Jury recognises the important role these urban creek corridors play in providing much needed environmental and recreational assets for our expanding city.. In particular, the ability for such spaces to provide a ‘natural sanctuary’ or ‘area of respite’ that can re-energise both the physical and mental wellbeing of its residents.

The Jury noted the innovative governance model that is likely to set a new benchmark in the revitalisation, management and maintenance of urban waterways. Led by a Board of Directors, supported by Brisbane City Council and delivered through multiple community, commercial and governmental partnerships, the Jury commends Oxley Creek Transformation in leading by example, establishing a culture of collaboration and valuing design excellence. The Jury eagerly awaits the transition of this exciting and bold vision into a world class asset for Brisbane.”
