Stage 1 complete

Stage 1 included a preliminary planning investigation and notifying landowners within the investigation area. The preliminary investigation was undertaken to understand the suitability and feasibility of the Highland Park investigation area to accommodate a growing population. This investigation looked at the following elements of the area:

  • surrounding context
  • existing urban design
  • infrastructure
  • opportunities and constraints.

A report was presented to Council in February 2022. The report found there were sufficient grounds to continue this project and that further investigations as part of Stage 2 – Technical investigations were required to gain a more detailed appreciation for the key matters identified in the preliminary planning investigation report.

Stage 2 in progress

Stage 2 began in July 2022 and will include further technical investigations and community engagement.
