What’s happened so far?
Community consultation so far has involved a vision workshop on Tuesday 25 August 2009, at which the project approach was discussed. Participants also worked towards creating a vision for the Dickson centre. A community information display was set up on Tuesday 8 September 2009 outside Woolworths in Dickson, giving the community the opportunity to drop by and have their say on the draft vision developed at the vision workshop. The outcomes of the workshop can be found on the ACTPLA website. The outcomes of the community information display are still being collated and will be posted on the website in coming days.

More information on the Dickson Centre Planning Project can be obtained directly from the external consultants Purdon Associations via email or phoning 6257-1511.

Outcomes of the workshop and further Information is also available on the ACTPLA website
