A group of 4th year Queensland University of Technology students studying under Associate Professor Phil Heywood came and visited Peregian Beach yesterday. They met with Raeleen Kaesehagen & myself at the Community House and asked many questions about how the local community is going about protecting it's character and values.
They made reference to http://cramed.org.au/. This group successfully fought and saved the old milton tennis court site to remain open space and recreation. A developer purchased it to become highrise accommodation.
Associate Professor Phil Heywood, from QUT's School of Civil Engineering and Built Environment, has mentored 24 award-winning student groups over the past 24 years and was recognised with a commendation in the Cutting Edge Research and Teaching Award category for his book Community Planning: Integrating Social & Physical Environments, which was published last year and has already become a standard text in urban planning.
