  • Engaging with the Community

    3 months ago

    We are proceeding with the first stage of community engagement on this project, as noted in the Council resolution below.

    Over the next four weeks we will be engaging with the local community and seeking expressions of interest to join a working group to help us shape the future design.

    We are looking to understand what the community want to see included and what they don't want to see included as part of the renewal, starting with a blank canvas we want to understand the needs and define the uses of the facility and it's surrounds.
