Community Engagement in Historic Cue
TPG was appointed to prepare the Shire of Cue Local Planning Strategy and Scheme Review project.
Team TPG made a trip up to the historic goldfields town to undertake community engagement activities in relation to the project. The Shire has a rich history associated with the gold rush of the late 1800s with the Cue townsite being established in 1893 and once boasting a population of 10,000 people and 13 hotels! Consultation with the community and stakeholders has established a firm understanding of the key issues facing the Shire. These relate to a need for affordable and quality housing, access to medical and other essential services, lack of employment opportunities in the region, significant tourism opportunities and a requirement to boost essential infrastructure to enable growth in the town. The town of Cue is a pretty town, with many of its historic buildings remaining well preserved to tell the tale of the towns former glory.
