Waterloo Redevelopment Masterplan Whiteboard Animation
We are proud to launch the Waterloo Redevelopment Masterplan Process Whiteboard Animation project developed by Inner Sydney Voice and Counterpoint Community Services in conjunction with the Waterloo Neighbourhood Advisory Board Waterloo Redevelopment Group. This project was funded by the Law & Justice Foundation NSW. The aim of the whiteboard animation project is to provide independent information to the whole of the Waterloo community and key stakeholders on the Waterloo masterplan process, and to encourage the community to have its voice heard as part of the process through an engaging, original and innovative medium. We strongly encourage you to share this video with your neighbours, colleagues, friends and families. Please share on your social media and organisation websites where possible. Our aim is to reach as many people are possible who may not know how the masterplan process works, who have not been involved in the masterplan conversations to date, or who find it confusing. We hope this video helps to put together the complicated pieces of the planning puzzle and simplify the process. Capturing the Waterloo story so far and what the next steps are in a three and a half minute video was no mean feat! Over the coming weeks and months we will be screening the video at local meetings and forums. We also encourage other organisations and community groups to have screenings at their meetings or upcoming events.

In spite if this we had a useful session unpacking this model which has some major attractions as part of the Communities Plus program - mainly that it does not sell off public housing lands.
