Your chance to shape the future of Kingston’s neighbourhoods
6 April 2018
Kingston residents are invited to take part in community consultation to help shape the future of their neighbourhoods.
Mayor Steve Staikos said Council is holding a series of listening posts, self-guided walking tours and an on-line survey to help the community reflect on what they value in their local area.
“Protecting the character of our neighbourhoods while accommodating new growth is a key challenge facing Kingston. How do we keep what we love, while making positive change for the future?,” Cr Staikos said. “Council is undertaking a Housing Strategy and Neighbourhood Character Study to help answer these questions.”
The Housing Strategy will provide a long-term plan to manage housing growth within our city while the Neighbourhood Character Study will involve a detailed assessment of design and development and an analysis of neighbourhood character in Kingston’s residential areas.
These projects are being undertaken together to address the interrelated issues of housing needs, location and design in Kingston.
“We want to work collaboratively with you to deliver a strategy for Kingston that incorporates community values, creates a shared understanding of local issues and enables everyone to have a say in our future,” Cr Staikos said.
