How to have YourSay:

Phase 3 of consultation is now open.

We’ve developed the Haig Park Place Plan based on Phase 1 & 2 of consultation findings.

In implementing the first of three stages outlined in the plan, short term experiments and activations, we want to know which improvements you most want to see in place in the park first.

You can participate during Phase 3 by:

  1. downloading the Haig Park Place Plan, and
  2. providing feedback via the Have Your Say tab above.

Hard copies of the place plan are also available in several Braddon cafes including:

  • Sweet Bones
  • Barrio
  • Lonsdale Street Roasters
  • Elemental

We will then review and get your thoughts on how you use and interact with the temporary activations to gauge their success and determine if they need to be changed and improved.

About the Haig Park Place Plan

Based on the feedback you provided during phase one and phase two of this project, we have developed the Haig Park Place Plan.

The place plan will ensure the park is a safer, vibrant, accessible and a healthy place to visit and enjoy.

The place plan collates and interprets the community’s suggestions and opinions from consultation into a strategic document with clear principles and actions to achieve a vision for Haig Park.

This place plan utilises a community-led approach to goal setting, renewal and programing. It offers a collection of activations and interventions in the park to encourage an iterative and adaptive program of change. The intent of the plan is to provide inspiration and lay out a way forward that addresses all aspects of the park.

The Haig Park Place Plan sets out three stages: short term experiments and activations, evaluate and change, and long-term improvements.

The first stage, experiments and activations, will begin in the second half of 2018. Before we start implementation of this phase, we want to know which of the proposed temporary activations outlined in the plan is most significant to you in helping to create a park for all of us.

We will use your views to:

The information you provide will inform and help us understand which activations we will test during stage one (short term experiments and activations) of the implementation of the Place Plan.

Have YourSay

The following activation ideas have followed from the previous two rounds of consultation, and we want you to have your say on which shortlisted items you want to see trialled first in the park. The information you provide will inform and help us understand what initiatives and areas to focus on and which activations we will test during the place engagement stage.

This part of the engagement will be open until midnight 8 August 2018. You will be able to comment on the preferred activations as they are implemented in the park.

What would you like to see in Haig Park?

We want to hear from you how each of the proposed temporary activations will help create a park for all of us.

Rate each temporary activation from 1 to 5, where 1 is low priority and 5 is high priority.

Please rate at least 5 activations.
