CEW were a supporting partner for Design Circle’s recently launched “MUD” report and video, both of which build from the highly successful day-long workshop event in September. The work begins to investigate the impact of the proposed new South Wales Metro beyond the turnstiles of the stations, instead looking at how the increased connectivity and ‘footfall’ could be used to stimulate economic, social and environmental benefits to the local communities and the region as a whole. 

Dan Lewis, Design Circle’s chair from HLM Architects, said “The new Metro stops are in the process of procurement, but they’re really just the pebbles being thrown: MUD has looked at the ripples they could cause, and highlights how we need to plan for these now if we are to get the biggest benefits”. 

Some of the key issues from Design Circle’s MUD event and the resulting report have also been captured in a five minute video, which were both launched to an audience of more than 100 at the RSAW Annual Conference. The report and video is now being disseminated widely and Design Circle anticipate activities on the next steps in 2017.
