  • Engagement Summary Report

    about 2 months ago

    Following an extensive community engagement process, community and stakeholder comments have been reviewed and documented in the Long Reef Surf Life Saving Club Engagement Report – January 2019

    Key outcomes

    Over 500 people provided comment at a drop in session, meeting or online during the second stage of engagement.

    The majority of the feedback was generally supportive of the draft concept and included comments on function and design aspects.

    A small number of people expressed dissatisfaction with the proposal overall with comments regarding the design (look) or proposed materials and the risk of attracting antisocial behaviour to the area.


    Next steps

    Council officers will present the outcomes of the community engagement to Council at its meeting on 26 February 2019.
