Ulverstone History Precinct Review Consultation Activities Background Project Timeline

The stakeholder and community feedback and input to the History Precinct project is vital to its success. The purpose of these activities is to generate general awareness of the project, seek ideas and input for compatible uses for the site, and to seek feedback on the Master Plan concept that is developed as the project progresses.

A range of engagement activities have taken place since May 2017, and will continue until late September 2017.

The summary information from the Vision and Aspirations and Early Concept phases can be found in the section ‘What has happened so far?’, located further down this page.

What Has Happened So Far?

Community consultation commenced in May 2017 and aimed to determine community interest in the project and the needs of different groups via a range of different engagement options, such as:

  • The establishment of an e-database of interested residents and stakeholders
  • A project newsletter (see link to document below)
  • Direct mail to key groups
  • Paid advertisements in newspapers and social media postings
  • Feedback forms
  • Community Forums were held on Wednesday 24 May, Thursday 25 May, Thursday 17 August and Friday 18 August
  • A market stall took place the Cradle Coast Farmers Market on Sunday 28 May, Saturday 19 August and Sunday 20 August
  • Briefings and interviews took place with key stakeholders
  • A Community Group was recruited to help guide the project and has met twice; once prior to the commencement of the engagement activities outlined above, and one following – to review the collected information.

Members of the Community Group are as follows:

  • Gena Cantwell
  • Ben Hiscutt
  • Kaye Ling
  • Pat Milburn
  • Luke Mitchell-Collins
  • Wendy Newton
  • Norma Raspin
  • Janice Stanfield
  • Phil Walsh

Two 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.
