Shire of Harvey President Paul Gillett said the proposed community precincts in Australind and Harvey will include a range of community and civic facilities and services for all ages.
“The precincts are designed to cater for the Shire’s future needs, for our children and grandchildren to use,” Cr Gillett said.
The Shire undertook a six-week consultation process during June, July and August to receive community feedback on the proposed community precincts.
Engagement and communications methodologies were developed to encourage community participation and to ensure a range of ideas and opinions were heard and captured.
The communications reached over 40 per cent of the Shire’s population. Over 2000 people or 7 per cent of the Shire’s population participated in different engagement opportunities and 550 direct survey responses were received for both projects.
A consultation report will be presented to Council on Tuesday, 28 September 2021.
Cr Gillett said the report presents the findings of the public consultation process in a transparent and unbiased manner in order to inform the Council decision making process.
“The local community will be involved at every stage, creating an open conversation to ensure all ideas, thoughts and opinions are heard.
“It’s how we’re working together towards an even better lifestyle for the benefit of all.”
The development of the community precincts will be staged. Design and documentation will start by the end of this year. Construction of the first phase of the precincts is planned to start in late 2022.
