Congratulations to Urbis Director, Michael Barlow, who was last night awarded the VPELA Richard J Evans Award.
This prestigious award recognises Michael’s lifelong achievements in Planning and is the Victorian Planning and Environmental Law Association’s (VPELA’s) highest honour.
The VPELA award ceremony looked a little different this year, with all guests dialing into a live video conference. However, this did not dampen the elegance of the affair, with all award nominees donning formal attire for this very special occasion. Michael Barlow treated attendees to a truly humble and inspiring acceptance speech which gave insight to his great achievements throughout his illustrious career.
We are delighted to celebrate this career-defining moment with Michael and reflect on the influence of his meaningful work, which can be seen the world over.
