Community Working Group

The group will consider the future use of Hawthorndene Oval and Apex Park and ensure that plans for the sites reflect the broad needs and aspirations of the local community.

The outcomes of the survey will inform the Working Group as they consider any issues and opportunities raised in the survey feedback. This group is being independently recruited by democracyCo and will meet on four occasions in March.
