Enquiry-by-design workshop – a collaborative master planning exercise

On Saturday 10 September some 50 members of the public gathered at the Tallebudgera Valley Community Centre to participate in the Currumbin Eco-Parkland Enquiry-by-Design (EBD) workshop.

Supported by key technical experts, the workshop provided attendees with an in-depth planning and design session that uncovered, explored, and tested design ideas from the local community and stakeholders.

The workshop, facilitated by Articulous, included presentations from Lat27, DesignFlow and the team of Ecological experts currently assessing the 148-hectare site. Participants enthusiastically contributed to design activities, listened to other perspectives, and carefully considered the constraints and opportunities for the eco-parkland. All participants also had the opportunity to share their aspirations for the site and consider what it would take to accommodate the range of uses and desired activities at the Eco-Parkland.

The ecological team outlined their initial findings regarding rare and threatened flora and fauna species already identified in their preliminary work. The ecologists will continue their work as we move from Spring into Summer, with their findings continuing to inform the master planning process.

The workshop included a collaborative master planning exercise. Working in small group alongside Lat27 and Articulous team members, each group designed their own concept master plan in response to the work regulation, site constraints and draft precinct options plan. Participants’ conversations carefully considered how a balance could be achieved between the range of desired activities and uses, with the site constraints. The groups were then asked to test the strength of their designs and identify opportunities for implementation.

For further details about the EBD workshop outcomes, please read the summary report.

What now?

The Project Team will consider all concepts from the enquiry-by-design process, past engagement responses, technical studies, and findings from the ongoing work of the ecologists, to prepare a final master plan.

The final master plan will be announced and made publicly available on our Have Your Say page once approved.
