Community engagement to inform the draft Public Space Strategy

In March 2019, community engagement was conducted and the feedback was used to inform a comprehensive engagement program which took place from August to September 2019. During this consultation we undertook a range of engagement activities to reach different segments of the community to ensure both a broad and targeted reach.

Activities included:

  • neighbourhood pop-up events
  • a online survey and forum
  • a interactive map
  • stakeholder workshops
  • targeted meetings and
  • interviews with groups that were underrepresented across various engagement activities


A summary of the key findings heard throughout community engagement is now available below:
