Great participation at the community workshop

8 June 2015

More than 200 residents from the Central to Eveleigh area came together on Saturday 30 May at Carriageworks to discuss inner city development and the positives and negatives of different types of development.

UrbanGrowth NSW hosted the day-long workshop as part of a series of consultation activities aimed at helping us develop the urban transformation strategy for the Central to Eveleigh rail corridor.

“It’s terrific that so many local residents joined us to learn more about the aims and ambitions, conflicting priorities and challenges of the project, and our work so far, as well as to provide their feedback on key elements,” said UrbanGrowth NSW Chief Executive David Pitchford.

“UrbanGrowth NSW is committed to working in partnership with the community and stakeholders, and the workshop was an important forum to explain the urban transformation process, summarise community feedback to date and reaffirm the vision and opportunities associated with the transformation.
More than 75% of participants said they thought the workshop overall was good to very good. The presentation and discussion guide are now both available and the community has been invited to join the discussion online.
