In late 2023, we ran a series of community engagement activities onsite, as well as online workshops to gain broad community feedback on the future of this precinct. Over 900 people attended the engagement activities and events, with around 580 people providing feedback.

In early 2024, we ran a series of workshops with key stakeholders to further inform the draft concept plans for Stage 1 of the project.

The vision

The draft concept plans reflect community feedback by focusing on creating a precinct that can be enjoyed and regularly accessed by the community and visitors, as well as providing fixed and flexible spaces to support local arts groups and the arts community more broadly.

How can I participate

We want to hear your thoughts on the draft concept plans. Your feedback will help to finalise the Stage One concept plans. Consultation was open until 15 May. People could turn up to 'come and chat' sessions or give feedback by:

emailing the Team

Next steps

After hearing from the community, the concept plans for Stage One will be presented to Councillors for endorsement. If endorsed, Council will proceed to the next stage of detailed design. Following this, construction is likely to commence early 2025, with the Stage One precinct opening mid to late 2025.

The broader area – Jacksons Hill

This project is part of the State Government’s broader plan to revitalise and activate Jacksons Hill and is being delivered with support from the State Government. For further information on Stage One, visit our project page: Sunbury Community, Arts and Cultural Precinct - Hume City Council.
