Three phases of consultation have now concluded.
Phase 1: The Vision and Aspirations Phase commenced in May 2017 and sought to gather the community’s initial feedback on the Ulverstone History Precinct redevelopment proposal. This was achieved through each of the engagement activities outlined above. The feedback was collated and summarised in July 2017, revealing some consistency of vision.
A record of this information is contained in the document Ulverstone History Precinct Review Communiqué #1 – July 2017, available by clicking here. The summarised information was provided to Tasmanian architect firm ARTAS to develop three Early Concept Plans.
Phase 2: The Early Concept Phase presented those Early Concept Plans, via a second round of consultation activities, and asked the community to provide feedback on each of the concepts as well as offer suggestions for further refinement.
