In February 2017, we started our process to deliver a future vision for the East Village precinct.
Between March and December 2017, we conducted a four-stage community engagement process. We received a total of 425 surveys, Facebook posts, emails, and mail and telephone submissions. Our forums attracted 177 participants and the community established an East Village Reference Group to represent your views throughout the planning process.
During the consultation process, you told us that the precinct would need to focus on:
- transport and access
- housing and building considerations
- employment and innovation
- green spaces, landscapes and drainage
- community facilities and services.
Together we created a vision for East Village.
We approved the East Village Structure Plan 2018–2031 at a Special Council Meeting on 23 October 2018. This was a major milestone.
We endorsed the following shared vision:
“East Village to be a sustainable mixed-use precinct with a focus on innovative employment and education opportunities... enhanced by green spaces and places for people, supported by a range of high-quality housing and retail that caters for all.”
Work will now start on implementing the East Village Structure Plan.
