Docklands a place for people

01 Apr 2015

Docklands will be included in City of Melbourne’s Places for People study for the first time this year.

Previously conducted in 1994 and 2004, the Places for People study aims to understand how people use public spaces throughout the city.

“Every 10 years we have put Melbourne under the microscope to observe how public spaces shape people’s experience of the city,” Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said. “This investigation and resulting analysis help us plan for the next decade and beyond.”

“In this third study we want to hear directly from members of the community about how well their neighbourhood is meeting their daily needs. This will help us better understand the neighbourhoods we have and plan for the neighbourhoods we need.”

“We want to zoom in and hear about how people actually access daily requirements, from fresh food and groceries to education, recreation and community services.”

Quantitative research examining the use and built form of Melbourne’s public spaces has been completed and now the City of Melbourne is gathering qualitative research about how people perceive Melbourne and use and experience their local neighbourhoods.

Consultation with the community started on March 23 and one pop-up has already been held in Docklands. The next pop-up is from 10am to 2pm at the Docklands Sunday Market on April 12.
