The Fremantle Esplanade Youth Plaza won first prize in the Delivered Outcome-Small Scale category, while the Kings Square Urban Design Strategy won a commendation in the Policy, Programs and Concepts-Small Scale category.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said national recognition for the two projects showed that the city was performing well in innovative new projects.

‘Fremantle council has set the bar high in what we want to achieve so it’s really pleasing that two of our cornerstone projects have won such high praise at a national level,’ the mayor said.

‘It’s a great reward for a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes by City staff and recognises our project partners Convic, who developed the youth plaza; and CODA and Creating Communities Australia who together helped develop the urban design strategy for Kings Square.’
