Throughout 2016 and 2017, the City has worked in collaboration with landowner consortium groups in each growth area underpinned by Memorandums of Understanding to deliver technical studies that inform the project.
The City hosted 'Open House #2' community session in October 2017 to share the outcomes of the draft and final technical reports that will inform the framework planning process with landowners and the community.
