Planning, Consultation and Stakeholder Engagement Timeline (Revised timeline, April 2022)
Quarter 1, 2021
Phase A – Initial Communication
This phase involved communicating widely about the project – its aims and objectives, the engagement process, how people could get involved, means of contacting the Community Liaison Office, etc.
Using a dedicated website, surveys, meetings with local stakeholders, elected members and wider public engagement, information was gathered on local strengths, needs, challenges and opportunities, along with the feedback from the Community Liaison Office and contact channels.
Quarter 2, 2021
Phase B – Initial Proposal
This Phase involved the engagement on the initial design proposals to inform the public and stakeholders on how the emerging scheme addressed the key issues.
Key activities included a series of events, workshops, and conversations where early ideas, views, sketches, and concepts were explored. There was a commitment for ongoing engagement with key stakeholders.
Quarter 1, 2022
Phase C – Detailed Proposal
This phase provided updated design proposals for the proposed development prior to progressing the formal pre-application consultation process. The feedback received has recently been carefully reflected on by the LDA and Design Team to inform the final application pack.
Quarter 3, 2022 onwards
Phase D – Planning
This phase will keep stakeholders updated of the progress with the planning application and post-decision. Following lodgement of an application, submissions or observations can be made by interested parties to the decision-making authority directly.
Application details will be publicly notified, available online for viewing at specified locations to support accessibility for all. Post-consent construction stage liaison is foreseen by the project CLO.
