RED Strategy Community Consultation Program

At the December 2003 Community Forum a proposed Consultation Program, which set out how the future consultation on the RED Strategy would be undertaken, was presented to the community by the RWPP. In stead of following this process the government decided to set up the RWA and not bring the Strategy back for community consultation or to put it through local council.


Draft Red Strategy to be displayed at South Sydney City Council for 28 days, the display will be staffed for specific times. Copies of the Draft Strategy will be available for the community and Feed back forms will be used to gather the community's responses. For those members of the community who are not comfortable with providing a written response, verbal interviews will be available.

A travelling Draft RED Strategy display will be set up around the community at the main gathering places, including out of hours venues eg. Redfern Street, Surrey Hills Shopping Mall, Alexandria Park School, Redfern Station, Waterloo Shops, Abercrombie Street shops.
