'Tropical Urbanism' - Cairns City Image Study
Best Planning Ideas - Small Project
Cairns Regional Council, Tract Consultants, Follent, Peddle Thorp, CA Architects, Total Projects Group Architects

The Cairns City Image Study project represents a turning point in the perception of building heights in Cairns for both the public and Council. The project delivers a contemporary and viable policy for built form through planning scheme provisions that increase development opportunities whilst preserving Cairns’ identity as a ‘city in a rainforest’.

Cairns Regional Council and the team of consultants are commended for undertaking a collaborative planning exercise, working with local architects to provide input into the study and to test the draft policy outcomes, capitalising on their local experience. The judges acknowledge that broader community engagement with the community was undertaken as part of consultation on proposed changes to the Council’s draft planning scheme.
