Co-design workshops to help shape Dickson Section 72

Released 11/10/2018

Canberrans have the opportunity to get involved and help shape Dickson Section 72 at two co-design workshops in coming weeks.

Dickson Section 72 is an important part of the Inner North that will provide more community facilities, as well as more private and social housing to meet the needs of current and future Inner North residents.

I am pleased to extend an open invitation for the community to attend a collaborative design workshop for Section 72. Attendees will have an opportunity to collaborate with design consultants on the renewal of public space, streets, paths, landscape, infrastructure upgrades and how future land uses and built form can be integrated with the existing community and private buildings.

We have already heard from a wide range of people about the planning and infrastructure priorities for the site. We have heard there is a preference for the site to contain a mix of uses and public space improvements, integrated with the existing green space along Sullivan’s Creek.

The first design workshop, to be held at 6:30-8:30pm on Wednesday 24 October, will be guided by the community feedback received to date. The consultant team will workshop ideas for the precinct with community members which will then be used to create a draft precinct plan.

At the second workshop to be held at 6:30-8:30pm on Thursday 15 November, the project team will present a draft precinct plan for Section 72 based on the community’s input from the first workshop. Feedback on what works and what could be improved will then guide the draft estate development plan, which will be presented to the community before it is lodged as a development application.

People interested in attending are invited to register for the free workshops by visiting
