Community Engagement Workshops

This process aims to engage in a participatory approach to gain increased awareness among experts/key stakeholders regarding typical and site specific obstacles towards better pedestrian and NMT access. Additionally the local residents are also made aware of the reasons behind increased vehicular dependence, poor public transport ridership and lack of safety. This process aims to engage in a participatory approach to gain greater understanding of mobility issues faced by the residents of the area and to collect community consensus for solutions proposed to increase mobility through pedestrian and NMT development.
In this way initial feedback on the scope of the project is taken on grass roots level and local participants maintain interest in future phase.
The participatory approach to gain greater understanding of mobility issues faced by the residents of the area and to collect community consensus for solutions proposed to increase mobility through pedestrian and NMT development.
The participative process with residents encourages other agencies to gain trust in the system.
The design solutions in this project will be arrived at through consultation with residents and key stakeholders at every stage. Local residents would be made aware of all the identified issues through design workshops and awareness, art projects with specific groups, such as children and youth and will be held in local sites, such as neighbourhood parks. The information collected during neighbourhood workshops will help refine the scope, design approach, timelines and costing for the project. It is also a critical method of determining the acceptability of the proposal.
