Last week was a busy one for the People’s Junction project team.
Two successful workshops were held presenting the preliminary concepts on the Spit Junction Masterplan and Mosman Civic Centre sites to the community. Almost 80 community members, comprised of business owners and local residents participated and provided valuable feedback that will be considered by the team prior to finalising the draft Masterplan for public exhibition.
Issues such as traffic, parking, location of public spaces, pedestrian safety and heights of buildings were discussed in detail.
Conversations on tradeoffs associated with new development to assist with the renewal of community facilities and public areas were also encouraged.
There were mixed opinions, particularly about building heights and how new development would change the face of the Junction. Some people accepted that carefully planned development was necessary. Others did not support further development.
We are still encouraging feedback and comments from the community. If you were unable to attend either of the workshops then download either of the two presentations from the:
Function @the Junction evening ; (PDF 9MB) or
Coffee Concepts Conversation event (PDF 9MB) and tell us your thoughts!
