Central Goldfields 2030 Community Planning Project, Central Goldfields Shire Council (2019-2020)

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.
