Health hub invites community feedback

The Anglesea community will soon come together to co-design the future of its Community and Health Hub.

A co-design group has been established for the project, featuring 39 people from the community, McMillan Street precinct users and key interest groups.

Surf Coast Shire mayor Liz Pattison said the group would help unite many community voices and looked forward to seeing the draft concept plan the group comes up with.

“It’s vital that we work hand-in-hand on this… so that we can hear all sorts of community viewpoints,” she said.

“This is a really exciting, once-in-a-generation project that will set a course for the precinct for the coming decades, leaving a lasting legacy for Anglesea.

“The community co-design group comprises a range of ages, genders, life experiences, housing tenure and ways people are connected to the precinct.”

Participants will take part in facilitated workshops during April and May to discuss how the precinct can be improved to meet the needs of community and service providers.

Mayor Pattison said the group will consider the work already completed and feedback received to develop a draft concept plan to share with the wider community for feedback.

“I know the McMillan Street precinct is a place the Anglesea community cares deeply about and we want everyone to be involved,” she said.

“So, there will be another opportunity for the wider community to have a say… Everyone will have a chance to provide feedback on the draft concept plan in the coming months.”
