Imagining the future of Moreland

We launched our Imagine Moreland engagement program earlier this year to find out your vision for the future of Moreland.

Stage one engagement included pop-up events, workshops, postcard drawings and digital engagement to help inform a new Moreland Community Vision. Stage two and three comprise a community panel process.

Thank you for being part of the conversation

Thank you to everyone who took their time to provide feedback during this first stage of engagement.

We received 3,227 comments across our engagement channels. We also heard loud and clear from our younger population including children, as well as our culturally and linguistically diverse community. It's been wonderful to have so much feedback from our community.

What our community said

In stage one of the Imagine Moreland engagement program, we asked what's important to you, and what services and projects you want us to prioritise. Here's a snapshot of what our community said:

  • More quality green spaces and tree lined streets
  • Improve the presentation of the city – remove litter and graffiti
  • More quality development – a need for good standards of housing development in our city
  • Pandemic recovery – more support for local businesses and support for jobs creation
  • More opportunities for social interaction particularly for younger people and older people.

Community Panel process

Stages two and three of Imagine Moreland comprised a Community Panel process.

In early March, we delivered 30,000 invitations to random households across Moreland, inviting household members to register their interest to participate in a Community Panel. From there, an external agency grouped the respondents by demographic data and randomly selected a panel of 44 people that are representative of Moreland’s diversity.

Between April and May the Community Panel collaborated over 3 days to develop the Moreland Community Vision document. This document will be available for public viewing and feedback later in the year.

Between May and June the Community Panel met each week online to provide feedback to inform the following Council strategies:

The discussion program, presentations and other updates from the Community Panel can be found here.

The documents produced through the Imagine Moreland project will be available for public viewing and feedback from 31 August - 17 September 2021.
