Springvale Laneway Consultation
ASPECT Studios were engaged to carry out consultation with the local community and key stakeholders to canvas their views about the future of Post Office lane and Laneway 248a; and gather stories, narratives or themes from which to develop a concept design.
A series of stakeholder focus group consultations were held with Springvale Rise Primary School Students, Access and Inclusion Leaders Group, Springvale Neighbourhood House Community Group Leaders, Councillors, employees and property owners, Literacy Centre participants, Springvale Asian Business Association and local traders and staff from across Council involved with Springvale Activity Centre.
The material presented for the focus groups involved a combination of practical questions and a set of open-ended prompts to elicit responses around stories, themes or insights into the laneways. More than 150 people were involved in the consultation and more than 100 survey responses received.
The outcomes of the focus group were then presented back to the general community in the laneway, via an ‘Out in the community’ session to gather the views of the broader community and visitors to the Springvale Activity Centre.
