Murrindindi Shire Council had proposed to sell two underutilised land parcels in order to part-fund the redevelopment of the Eildon reserves. Council decided to undertake deeper engagement to understand the community’s views and empower them to recommend a path forward.

Capire was engaged to deliver an independent deliberative engagement program that would allow the Eildon community to make informed decisions on the redevelopment.

The 25-member Deliberative Panel, facilitated by Capire, celebrated how a small township with traditionally low engagement, and a project with limited resources, can undertake a deeper engagement process to inform decision-making, build trust, and move forward with a redevelopment that will not only increase green and recreational spaces, but also draw regional tourists to the area.
