Michelle King wins Maddocks Young Planner of the Year

Friday 18 December 2015

Whitehorse City Council urban planner Michelle King has won this year’s Maddocks Local Government Young Planner Award.

Ms King won the award for her contribution and commitment to improving the statutory planning processes and community engagement methods at Whitehorse City Council. This has included her involvement in major projects, such as the Deakin University Bridge and Concrete Batching Plant redevelopment, and in the council’s Urban Forest Working Group.

Ms King, who started work as a town planner in 2014,  was presented with the award at the Maddocks Planning & Environment team’s end-of-year function. The award comprises a $5000 grant.

Speaking after the award ceremony, Partner Maria Marshall said that the Young Planner of the Year Award was designed to acknowledge the contribution and commitment of a young planner to the field of council planning and to encourage them to continue to develop to their fullest potential.

‘Michelle was a standout candidate for this year’s award,’ Maria said.

‘It was clear from her nomination that Michelle serves as a role model for other young professionals by demonstrating how a junior planner within local government can drive significant community projects and use their ideas to further the practice of planning.’
