Studio GL was engaged to assist Wollongong City Council in the preparation of the Port Kembla 2505 Revitalisation Plan. Our role included organising community consultation, providing urban design analysis and advice and the preparation of diagrams, sketches and artist impressions to explain the ideas.
The community consultation for this project was conducted in two stages. The first stage included gaining an understanding of the thoughts and desires of the community through hands-on interactive workshops using placemaking maps, visioning & ideas boards, and summaries of previous plans & visions. The second stage included gathering community feedback on Wollongong Council’s vision and ideas presented through diagrams, sketches and visualisations. The consultation strategy and detailed comments from the community along with a detailed urban design analysis, were submitted to Wollongong Council in a Background Report.
Diagrams, sketches and artist impressions created by Studio GL were included in Wollongong Council’s draft Port Kembla 2505 Revitalisation Plan which was placed on Public Exhibition in February 2018.
