Throughout 2018 we'll host regular workshops to speak with communities about North East Link.
About Series #1 - February 2018
Our workshop series started in February 2018. We discussed planning strategy, opportunities and constraints and ask locals to help us better understand existing conditions in the project area.
Our content specialists got things started with short presentations. Community members then got involved in small group discussions and activities.
- Urban design
We asked you to 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.
- Walking and cycling
We asked you to help us plan a better network of walking and cycling tracks for all kinds of cyclists and walkers - commuters, recreational cyclists, families, dog walkers, power walkers, runners and more.
- Your environment
We asked you to 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.
The workshops were held in Bulleen on Tuesday 27 February at the Veneto Club and on Tuesday 6 March at the Manningham Club.
After the workshops, we continued the conversation online. We posted copies of the information our content specialists shared, a snapshot of the ideas generated by participants and answers to the questions they asked on the night.
We also asked people to let us know if their views were represented and add anything they thought we had missed.
Series #1 of our online workshops are now complete.
We're now compiling all the ideas and comments and will report back what we heard soon. You can view the archived online conversation here jointheconversation.northeastlink.vic.gov.au
