Hames Sharley News: Planning Institute Success for SJ 2050

Crown Perth played host to the annual WA Planning Institute of Australia awards on Friday afternoon, and a Hames Sharley project was among the events major winners.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale 2050 Vision project was the recipient of the Hard Won Victory Award and Urban Design Associate Shannon O’Shea was in attendance to collect the trophy onstage alongside members of the Shire.

“We are truly delighted that this project has received recognition in a category that included some exemplary projects” said Shannon. “On these occasions we often like to pay tribute to our partners, and in this instance it couldn’t be more true. It is the relationship that we formed with members of the Shire and the local community that allowed the SJ 2050 Vision to be regarded as such a success.”

“The Serpentine Jarrahdale community and the Shire have experienced a number of challenges in recent years, including possible amalgamation, significant growth, (being the fastest per capita growth local government in Australia for the past three years), and increasing pressure on ageing infrastructure. SJ 2050 aims to set out a framework for the Shire and commit to accommodating 100,000 people.”

Congratulations to everyone involved in the project.
