Community workshops

Throughout 2018 we'll host regular workshops to speak with communities about North East Link.

About Series #1 - February 2018

Our workshop series will start in February 2018. Before we provide a design update in the coming months, we'll discuss planning strategy, opportunities and constraints and ask locals to help us better understand existing conditions in the project area.

Our content specialists will get things started with short presentations. You'll then get involved in small group discussions and activities. Places are limited and registration is essential.

Conversation streams

You can register to join one of three conversation streams:

  • Urban design
    Help us better understand how you travel around your local area, how you use community spaces like parks and shops and what you like about the look and feel of your neighbourhood. This session is about improving how the project connects communities and how design elements like noise walls could look.
  • Walking and cycling
    Help us plan a better network of walking and cycling tracks. We want to hear from all kinds of cyclists and walkers - commuters, recreational cyclists, families, dog walkers, power walkers, runners and more.
  • Your environment
    Let us know more about the environment you live in including traffic, noise, air quality, landscape, flora and fauna. What do you value, what concerns do you have and what can be improved.

This is an opportunity to learn more about how major projects like North East Link are planned and contribute to the design of North East Link.

Get involved

You can attend the workshops in person or join the conversation online. As these three sessions will be held at the same time, it will only be possible for you to attend one.

To allow people to work in small groups, places for each conversation stream are limited to 40 people. If places fill up quickly, we will add you to a waiting list and run further sessions the following week.

Join the conversation online

If you can't attend in person, or want to join more than one conversation stream, we'll be offering opportunities to get involved online after the event.

We'll share copies of the information from our content specialists and a snapshot of the ideas generated by participants. You'll be able to see what was discussed, let us know if your views were represented and add anything you think was missed.

To receive an email alert when the online conversation opens, make sure you are signed up to receive our project updates here.

About Series #2

Our community workshops will continue after Easter. These sessions will help us to have more in-depth conversations with communities about specific design challenges and opportunities.
