Central Goldfields Shire Council (funded by the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund) engaged Local Logic Place to work with residents to develop a ten-year community plan for eight identified communities: Maryborough & District, Bealiba & District, Carisbrook & District, Dunolly & District, Talbot & District, Majorca & District, Bet Bet & District, Timor & District.
The eight-month project engaged 1,037 residents through:
- Listening posts
- Online survey
- Post cards
- Children’s drawing activities
- Drop-in sessions
- Roving interviews
- Focus groups; and
- Community workshops
Local Logic Place worked closely with Council’s Project Control Group (PCG) to design locally relevant engagement methods and tools and to guide the overall project.
