From 1 March to 30 April 2022, we asked how we might make the East Melbourne neighbourhood the best it could be.

From 15 August to 4 September 2022, we shared what we heard during those two months, and the draft neighbourhood priorities we identified. We asked how well we’d captured the priorities, whether there was anything missing or if refinements could be made.

The feedback and information gathered through Participate East Melbourne will influence neighbourhood planning for East Melbourne.
