The brief for this project was to develop a plan that would help to breathe new life and attract new residents into this small and declining rural township. Rather than following a traditional statutory planning type process, the project took a design led approach with a focus on delivering 5 key “shovel ready’ projects that the community could understand and take ownership over and would attract government support .
In collaboration with CHC architects and FFLA, onecollective provided the lead urban design role in developing an innovative consultation strategy which centred around the refit of a vacant shop space within the town’s main street into a community ‘workshop’. An overall town plan and key projects for the main street, parkland foreshore, sports precinct and future residential areas were generated which have to date leveraged investment in the range of $5.8 million and helped to create an exciting future for the Tallagatta of tomorrow.
