Your environment

Large infrastructure projects like North East Link provide opportunities and funding to develop and improve local areas.

To help inform some of the early project design work happening now, we hosted a workshop on 27 February and 6 March to better understand what communities value about their environment.

Because project design work for North East Link is still at an early stage, we asked questions about ‘big picture’ community values, rather than for feedback about individual locations or specific design elements.

The word ‘environment’ means different things to different people. The workshop asked people to consider and discuss three different meanings.

  • Surroundings – traffic, noise, air and vibration
  • Ecology and landscape – trees, waterways and flora and fauna
  • Social and community – community connections, vulnerable communities, heritage

We asked what’s important to you, what you like, what you don’t like, and for ideas about how the environment you live in could be improved.

How you can get involved

Now that the workshops are over, we’ve continued the conversation online. You can see what we heard from the participants in the room, and add any extra comments you want us to consider.

To get started, we recommend you

  • Watch the videos of the presentations that were given on the night from our content specialists
  • Read the information handouts
  • Read the questions participants asked us during the session and read our answers. You can also ask your own questions here
