The Office of Housing is preparing a Master Plan to guide the renewal of the Richmond and Atherton Gardens (Fitzroy) Housing Estates. The City of Yarra commissioned a program of research to explore how the local community would like to see the estates developed.
The outcomes of the research are intended to inform Council’s submissions to the Master Plans and other representations made to the Victorian Government and its agencies. In each location the research involved three (3) focus groups and 100 door-to-door surveys. The fieldwork was conducted between 15 August 2012 and 11 September 2012 and captured a range of views from estate residents and those living in the surrounding areas.
