Community engagement

Council launched the master plan process in September 2018 with a public survey asking the community to reflect and comment on their connection to the City Reach area.

Council analysed the feedback received and used it to help create the draft master plan document.

Council released a draft master plan for comment in November 2019 and is in the process of considering the feedback received whilst preparing the final City Reach Waterfront Master Plan which will be released in 2020.
