Places Victoria (now Development Victoria) and City of Melbourne worked together to ensure that meaningful community engagement occurred throughout the stages of the Harbour Esplanade redevelopment.

Community consultation was an essential part of the redevelopment. The level of engagement varied for each stage of development and was tailored to maximise stakeholder and community participation as appropriate.
