Water Proofing the South Stage 2

Client
Leed for the City of Onkaparinga (2011 – 2012)

GTP Role
GTP prepared and implemented a Communications and Community Engagement Strategy for the construction of wetlands and storage basins as well as new pipelines and stormwater infrastructure. Our key tasks included doorknocking of all residents and businesses along the construction corridors, planning community information events with council staff, facilitating community events and open days, and preparation and distribution of key communications, letters, brochures and information sheets.

Given the number and high interest of local community members on this project, we identified the need to increase the range and type of communications materials developed to meet the information needs of local residents. This included preparation of additional fact sheets and flyers covering issues such as mosquito population growth and further door knocking with residents adjacent the proposed new wetlands. 

Outcome
Over 550 design input surveys were received during the consultation, which were analysed and incorporated into an engagement report.
