Who will be consulted?
This project was developed in response to a petition from electors living in the south eastern ward of the City.
We need to talk to the lead petitioner, the people who signed it and the people most likely to use a premier play space. In this case, it will be the residents and ratepayers in the suburbs of Leeming and Bull Creek.
The outcome of the consultation process will be a concept plan for a new play space as part of an existing park in either Bull Creek or Leeming.
How will they be consulted?
There will be two phases of consultation.
A random sample of people living in the suburbs of Bull Creek and Leeming will recieve an email inviting them to complete an Expression of Interest to serve on a Community Reference Group (CRG). Places will be limited to 10 people who fit the criteria for membership. A terms of reference for this group has been developed, which sets out the criteria for membership and the tasks members will need to complete.
"Let's talk about parks online" forum is open for the duration of the consultation process. Anyone who wants to say anything that could help create a place to be proud of can share their ideas here.
The broader community living in the suburbs of Bull Creek and Leeming will have an opportunity to decide which of the options - refined by the CRG - are preferred. So watch this space!
What's happening with the consultation?
Members of the Community Reference Group and project team staff met for the first time on Wednesday March 1, 2017 and completed Phase1 of the consultation on March 29, 2017 having identified the preferred location and style of park. Phase 2 will begin once a draft concept plan has been drawn up by the City's Landscape Architect.
