Focus Groups at the Ideas Hub

Last week Pindan and its community engagement consultants Creating Communities held a series of Focus Groups at the Ideas Hub within the Ocean Village Shopping Centre.
As expected, the Focus Groups proved to play an important role in broadening our understanding of this unique site, what is distinctive about the Ocean Village precinct and how best we can capture all the elements that make up a highly desirable and functional neighbourhood precinct.
The views shared were from a diverse range of people within the local community and provided useful insight in to what the local community would like to see incorporated in A New Ocean Village; what is special about City Beach; and what needs to be done to address the community’s needs and aspirations.  
The project team will be using the feedback to help inform the future planning for the precinct. We will engage further with the community once we have developed some design concepts.
We would like to express our gratitude for everyone’s input and look forward to continuing our discussions further with the local residents.
