How has LIVING CITY come about?
LIVING CITY is the result of a 30 year community aspiration.
In 2013, Council undertook extensive community consultation in relation to the principles of the project. Survey responses were received from over 1,000 people and the principles of LIVING CITY were overwhelmingly supported.
The LIVING CITY Master Plan(PDF, 12MB)
was designed based on these principles. Council adopted the LIVING CITY Master Plan in September 2014 after more community consultation.
Since 2014, Council has been working towards the implementation of the Master Plan, with design drawings, the permit process, construction tendering and a financial plan for Stage 1 now completed.
