Over 170 residents and workers attended an open consultation on the future of Norwest at Mulpha’s first community SMARTtalks event at Novotel Norwest in July.
During the evening, Mulpha announced a series of community-building initiatives for Norwest spanning housing (NorwestInnovate), transport (NorwestConnect), education and jobs (NorwestLearn), health and well-being (NorwestAlive), community and culture (NorwestCulture), and environmental sustainability (NorwestEco).
Mulpha Norwest Executive General Manager, Tim Spencer outlined his vision to transform Norwest into a Smart City, and residents and local businesses were able to discuss and provide feedback on all aspects of Norwest planning and community-building initiatives.
Mr Spencer said: “Community participation is at the heart of our vision to create a vibrant, thriving community and a world-leading innovation and economic hub with all the benefits of smart city to ensure an engaged and evolving diverse community.
“This event was a great opportunity for us to talk directly with all stakeholders and start an ongoing conversation about how we ensure Norwest becomes a fantastic place to live, work and play. We plan to hold these events quarterly, with the next event in November this year.
“We recognise that a great community and liveable smart city requires good planning and design, as well as the active involvement of residents, employers and workers.”
