Mark Sheppard recently joined a panel of industry experts at a VPELA event, 'Central City Built Form Controls - innovation or consternation?'
The weather turned it on for our three teams who competed in the AustralianSuper Corporate Triathalon Series last Sunday. We look forward to seeing this become an annual event on the David Lock Associates' social calendar.
We'd also like to extend our thanks to Sean Stephens from Essential Economics who filled one of the swim legs.
Great effort team DLA!

‘The fastest, best-connected places will win in the new global economy.’- John Kasarda
Transportation infrastructure has always shaped business location, commercial activity and urban development. Just as highways were the main drivers of urban development in the 20th century, and railroads in the 19th century, airports are now becoming the main determinants of business location and growth in the 21st century.
David Lock Associates has provided urban design input to inform the preparation of the Tunstall Square Structure Plan. The Structure Plan will inform and provide direction for future land use and built form of the centre over the next 20 years. The Plan sets out a number of actions intended to ‘stitch’ the two parts of the centre and to the surrounding urban fabric and to stimulate local economic and social needs. More specifically, it provides strategic direction and detailed recommendations to improve the identity of the public realm and landscape needs.
Getting the strategic analysis right as part of an urban context and design response report (UCR) can make all the difference in making the case for planning approval at council.
Congratulations to RotheLowman for taking out two awards at the Urban Development Institute of Australia awards for excellence.
