We are proud to support the growth of a strong community in Ginninderry - an innovative, award-winning, sustainable development on the western fringe of Canberra.
Creating a new residential development is much more than bricks, mortar and landscaping. For a neighbourhood to be a success, social capital needs to be developed through meaningful connections between neighbours leading to a sense of community and belonging.
Ginninderry is a vibrant and sustainable community in the north-west of Canberra, surrounded by beautiful natural areas. Communication Link has been working with Riverview Group, the developers, to build trust and support residents to share their views and put their visions into action. This has been achieved through the integration of existing community outreach activities with feedback activities including community workshops, online surveys and on-site pop-ups.
The project started with a ‘community check in’ event which helped new neighbours get to know each other, share current concerns and to express their vision for their new community.
We provide ongoing mentoring and support to Ginninderry to continue to build positive engagement, ongoing collaboration and trust with residents. This includes currently working to transition existing community reference groups to better reflect current needs of this growing neighbourhood.
