We worked with key stakeholders and the community to determine the preferred concept design of the Shakespeare Grove stormwater drain outlet. We: 

  • held workshops with key stakeholders including local businesses and community groups 
  • sought community feedback on concept designs through a survey available on the Melbourne Water website between January and February 2020
  • undertaken an internal Melbourne Water approvals process. 

Following this process, the Circle of Reflection concept is the design Melbourne Water will be progressing to the construction phase of the project.
