City of Newcastle (CN) is engaging with the community and key stakeholders on the future of the Harbour Foreshore, including Foreshore Park and Joy Cummings promenade. A comprehensive community engagement program is underway in collaboration with consultants Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL) and inclusive playspace partner Variety the Children’s Charity (VCC).
Together, we’ll engage the community on thoughts and visions for the future of the harbour foreshore and use this to inform a detailed masterplan for the site. The masterplan will guide the enhancement of the foreshore into a public asset the whole community can continue to be proud of.
As part of our community engagement program, CN has created a Community Reference Group (CRG) that represents both key stakeholders and user groups of the Harbour Foreshore, along with community members of a range of ages, abilities and walks of life. The purpose of the CRG is to enable two-way communication and engagement between CN and representatives of the Newcastle community as we develop the Harbour Foreshore Masterplan.
More information on this, including the list of CRG members, meeting schedules, member duties and responsibilities is available in the CRG Terms of Reference.
The CRG is one element of our engagement program for enhancement of the Harbour Foreshore area. The CRG complements other engagement activities with the broader community. To stay up to date on how to have a say on how the masterplan is developed, please visit Harbour Foreshore Have Your Say page. There will be further opportunities for broad community feedback from late 2021.
