Have say on Quar­ter con­cept

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

SHOP­PERS will get an op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute to Clare­mont Quar­ter’s Third Place con­cept this week.

Plan­ner’s TPG will op­er­ate a com­mu­nity booth near Coles on Thurs­day from 2pm-5.30pm and out­side Atomic Café on Satur­day from 11am-2.30pm, where peo­ple can have their say about what’s needed in the com­mu­nity space.

“If most peo­ple’s first place is home and their sec­ond place is work, then we have to com­pete for the ‘third place’ where they spend their valu­able leisure time,” Hawai­ian prop­ert group chief ex­ec­u­tive Rus­sell Gibbs said.

“We want to cre­ate a space that adds to the lo­cal com­mu­nity and to achieve this we need to talk to our com­mu­nity.

“The in­ten­tion is for it to be a vi­brant and en­gaged area all year round, which means ac­tiv­ity and in­fra­struc­ture would be planned with the con­sid­er­a­tion of all the sea­sons.”

Af­ter the com­mu­nity en­gage­ment ses­sions, TPG and Hawai­ian will work with the Town of Clare­mont to de­velop an Ac­tion Plan that will help de­liver the con­cept.
