As part of our agreement with ACT Government, Lendlease is fulfilling community engagement as the project evolves. 

Three phases of engagement have been completed by Lendlease:

Phase 1 Tender Concepts:
The Preliminary Plan was presented to the community in September 2021 during Phase 1 Tender Concepts engagement.

Phase 2 Concept Plan:
Feedback received in Phase 1 informed refinements to the Concept Plan presented to the community in late October 2021.

Phase 3 Pre Development Application:
Feedback received in Phase 2 informed refinements to the Pre-DA Plan presented to the community in January 2022.

Community feedback from Phase 3 is reflected in the plan included in the Development Application Lendlease is submitting to the EPSDD. 

Engagement activities have included the project website www.visitgoldcreek.com, virtual live community engagement sessions, stakeholder meetings (virtual and face-to-face), virtual ideas wall and stakeholder surveys.
