Public engagement is a key part of our planning process. It allows our team to understand community values, concerns and aspirations for the future of the site and provides a means for an open stream of communication to continue through all phases. Community feedback, existing property conditions and constraints, developer aspirations and applicable planning policies will all be considered in the design of our Development Master Plan.
