Urbis undertook a study to identify and analyse the negative and positive impacts associated with a revitalisation of the Marrickville Metro Shopping Centre. The project involved a Social and Economic Benefits study and a Crime Prevention Through Environment Design (CPTED) study.
Urbis assessed the potential impacts and benefits of the redevelopment and identified possible measures to minimise any negative impacts. An audit of existing social and community infrastructure was undertaken to ascertain any shortfalls in service provision in the local area, with consideration to future demographic changes in the area.
Consultation with Marrickville Council and local community agencies formed an important part of the project. They assisted in identifying key community groups to be further engaged in the planning and design phases, together with recommendations for community infrastructure to be incorporated into the development.
