Update #1 - Engagement now closed

June 10, 2014

Over the past month, Places Victoria has spoken to more than 300 people at pop-up information events or formal meetings, and together with the City of Melbourne we have shared information with almost 4000 people via the Participate Melbourne site and received feedback from more than 460 people through formal surveys.

The engagement program has now concluded and work has begun to collate your feedback. This will inform the master plan for Harbour Esplanade, which will provide a blue print for the development of the Docklands waterfront over the long term. In July, Places Victoria expects to be able to provide an overview of the key elements that have emerged from the conversation and the next steps to progress development.

If you visit Harbour Esplanade, you will see the significant progress that is being made to prepare the waterfront for development. Temporary fencing is being removed as the demolition of ageing wharf decks nears completion, and this is once again opening up views to the water. The glasshouse café, Hortus, and a temporary landscaping installation is also providing life and activity on the waterfront
