Community Consultation

Australian Unity is committed to building a long-term relationship with the local Herston community.

 

Community engagement

Our approach to managing the opportunities, issues and risks of the Herston Quarter development will focus on:

  • Establishing a clear communications and stakeholder engagement process
  • Build on the project’s strengths and key opportunities identified throughout the master planning process
  • Adequately resourcing engagement activities
  • Understand and manage the project stakeholders proactively

When developed in harmony with community standards and expectations, we believe the project will deliver significant opportunities to the local community and Queenslanders more broadly.

Indigenous community consultation

We understand that there are strong indigenous community connections to the Herston Quarter.

Indigenous community engagement will be addressed in two direct streams through the Herston Quarter Project:

  • Direct and active engagement with local indigenous groups, traditional owners and elders to recognise local Aboriginal tradition and culture and provide access to land.
  • Direct and indirect engagement through Indigenous participation in the project.

A detailed communication timetable will be available shortly. We recommend the interested stakeholders subscribe to stay informed and up-to-date about the development.

As a result of the Herston Quarter being declared a Priority Development Area in November 2016, Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) will provide information to  the community, residents and business owners about the opportunity and seek feedback  on the planning for the site. This is expected to occur in mid-2017.

More information about this engagement is available from EDQ.
