The department has established a Community Committee for the renewal of the North Melbourne site. The Committee is Chaired by Sheena Watt MP.
The committee brings together community members and representatives of local organisations to ensure effective communication throughout the site renewal. It enables ongoing and two-way feedback through participation with stakeholders and the community.
Members of the committee provide input and feedback on redevelopment plans and identify local issues and matters of concern as they arise. Committee members will communicate the progress of the redevelopment back to their communities to support the successful delivery of the project.
