Review of Docklands Community Forum

06 Nov 2017

The City of Melbourne is this month seeking local input into a review of the Docklands Community Forum (DCF).

The forum is five years old and is substantially remained in the same format led by a selected “Docklands Representative Group” (DRG) ever since.

The DRG has been working with council and Development Victoria representatives for most of the year about the best way to renew and revitalise the concept.

Council community engagement officer Melanie Del Monaco told the most recent forum on October 25 that it was now time to involve the wider public.

“How do we make the Docklands Community Forum more engaging and more inclusive of the current Docklands community?” she asked. “And more representative of the community as well.”

“What we realised was that we also needed to talk to the broader community about what they want from the forum.”

“What it should look like? What kind of topics should we have? How it should be run?”

“What we are looking to do from tonight is to run an engagement over the next four weeks to hear from you about what you would like to see from this forum.”

“We really want to revisit the purpose of the forum and understand how to make it really relevant,” Ms Del Monaco said.

The DCF was introduced five years ago to replace the statutory Docklands Co-ordination Committee, which was proving too costly to maintain.
