“Regional towns are in constant competition for visitors, and to attract and retain skilled, permanent populations. This project took an unconventional approach to Civic Precinct planning in the rural town of St Arnaud, embedding a multidisciplinary team in the town to tease out local narratives and use creative intervention as a catalyst for further action.”

Over the past nine months, SGS Economics & Planning, Maudie Palmer AO and MvS have been working on a new precinct plan for the old gold mining town of St Arnaud. Our works to date were presented last week by Mitra Anderson-Oliver and Dr Marcus Spiller at the 7th International Urban Design Conference in Adelaide.
