Harvest is supporting Tim Nott (economic consultant) in creating a new Retail and Activity Centre Strategy for the Melton City Council. The Strategy will propose a new activity centre network to service the existing and expected needs of this growth area Council.
As part of the project, Harvest has also delivered a project-specific website called Shop Melton City. The website provides summary information on the project, interactive web mapping and a unique, spatially-based survey. The survey allows users to create information relating to what they like / don’t like about current centres. This information will be used to improve the amenity and design of existing and new centres.
Harvest has also completed a range of mapping activities to document existing conditions and is working on a method using multi-criteria GIS approaches to define the best locations for new activity centres.
