Designing Flemington Community @ Debneys Park with community input

6 months ago

Work is progressing on the concept designs for our new community space. These will soon be available for you to view, and provide feedback on.

Input from residents, community groups and organisations, as well as members of the Flemington Neighbourhood Advisory Group and staff of the Flemington Community Centre, continues to guide the designs. Most recently, we gained feedback on the vision for the project, and design inspiration for different types of facilities including building height and size.

This consultation reinforced Debneys Park as a place for the whole community. We heard that the designs should be welcoming of all, cater to many interests of local residents, and encourage people to use the park, get to know their neighbours and spend time with their families.

Creating a beautiful, safe and natural hub that includes a range of facilities which are fun, and well connected to each other and to the surrounding areas, is important.

Buildings can be significant but should be beautiful and respectful of the surrounding parkland.
