Coming Up

There’s lots of opportunities for community and stakeholders to be involved each step of the way.

Check back in for updated dates and details as the project progresses or subscribe for email updates.


Over the past couple of months, we’ve had a great response to our online, telephone and intercept surveys which have provided a lot of insightful feedback from our community and stakeholders. We’ve also held a range of focus groups with different stakeholder groups and community members, and the feedback from these have helped us to refine the design principles and ideas.

We’re now keen to engage further by conducting Design Workshop sessions.

1. Stakeholder Conversations:

We’re connecting with local businesses, stakeholders, government agencies and community groups to seek early input into aspirations and priorities for the future of the study area. If your organisation would like to chat with the team, get in touch by emailing

2. Community Survey:  

We asked you to jump online and fill in our web survey or keep an ear out for our randomised phone surveys. The surveys will help us to understand how often and why people visit Fishing Boat Harbour, the priorities for any future redevelopment of the study area and more.

3. Focus Group Sessions:

We think it’s really important to hear from a broad mix of community members. We held Focus Group sessions for different community groups and stakeholders to delve deeper into the potential opportunities for the site. The feedback from these sessions will help us understand the key opportunities and challenges of the site, as well as refining the principles to consider in design.

4. Design Workshops:

Join us for a LIVE Design Lab. We’ll be taking the themes and messages from the earlier phases of consultation onboard and working with community members to explore site design options during an interactive workshop session. Click here to register your interest in attending a Design Workshop.

5. Open Days:

Drop in to view the draft plans for the study area that have been developed through the previous engagement activities – and to chat directly with the project team.
