Consultation on Draft River’s Edge Strategy wrapping up

Residents will have their last opportunity to have their say on ways to boost recreational, economic and tourism opportunities along the Brisbane River, with public consultation on the draft River’s Edge Strategy wrapping up at the end of June.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said since feedback opened at the beginning of the month, there had been more than 230 responses to Council’s online survey.

“The Brisbane River is one of our city’s most iconic asset and it is important that we work together to plan responsibly for its activation in the future,” he said.

“So far, the response has been great and we look forward to hearing more about what people think about the strategy and their aspirations for the river.

“All feedback on the strategy will be taken into consideration and once we have collected and reviewed all the submissions and survey responses, the next step will be to finalise the plan.”

Cr Quirk said within the strategy Council had identified projects that could be easily prioritised for the community.

“In our initial survey to the community last year about what they wanted to see happening on and alongside the river, more than 2,200 respondents voted for more cafes, restaurants and commercial ventures along the river,” he said.

Cr Quirk encouraged people to check out the draft strategy on Council’s website and said the easiest way for people to share their thoughts was via a survey the online survey, which would be available for completion up until 30 June.

Designed with the user in mind, the survey has been divided into the four sections of the draft strategy – Place, Play, Connect and Enable – meaning residents have the option of focusing on one or more of these areas of the strategy. Each section is then broken into projects so people can comment on one or as many projects as they like.

The draft River’s Edge Strategy study area runs from the University of Queensland St Lucia and Fairfield through to Bulimba and Northshore Hamilton.

View the full strategy and share your thoughts on the potential projects using the online survey at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/riversedge by Sunday 30 June 2013. Written feedback can be provided to: River’s Edge Strategy, Brisbane City Council, NNK, Reply Paid 1434, Brisbane, QLD, 4001 or email feedback via rivers.edge@brisbane.qld.gov.au.
