Local residents have given the thumbs up to the Northern Water Plant project now underway in Corio.
In May/June we invited feedback from Corio and Norlane residents on the project, specifically on our efforts to inform and engage community members on the project development.
About 9500 households received a survey on the project in the mail. 499 residents responded.
Feedback from the survey was overwhelmingly positive.
For full survey results, see the report below.
The Northern Water Plant, adjacent to the Shell Geelong Refinery in Corio, is currently in the early stages of construction and is due for completion in early 2013.
We are committed to ongoing community engagement on this major infrastructure project. Since the inception of the project we've kept our stakeholders and community members informed with information bulletins, fact sheets, mail outs, letterbox drops, door knocks, an "open house" event at the Norlane Community Centre and information kiosks at the Corio Shopping Centre.
The Corio Norlane Development Advisory Board (CN DAB) acts as community reference group for the project and we brief its members every two months.
Thank you to those who completed and returned the survey to us — we appreciate your feedback.
