Current & RECENT PrOJECTS 


At any one time, we're working on a wide range of projects across a variety of issues and industries. Below is a selection of some of our current and recent work.

MosaicLab facilitators - workshop and community engagement
 
Nillumbik - green wedge deliberation engagement facilitators
 

For the first time in Nillumbik Shire Council’s history, a special community panel of 40 residents from across the municipality will be established to provide recommendations to Council as it reviews its Green Wedge Management Plan.

The panel will be a randomly and independently selected group that is representative cross-section of community members and will sit for up to five days.  The panel will listen to the community’s views covering social, economic and environmental impacts, consider research, hear evidence and make recommendations to Council on ways to ensure the green wedge is preserved, nurtured and managed for current and future generations. 

The review process will be undertaken in four-stages starting in May with Council and community representatives working to identify the best ways to engage with the community, including hard-to-reach audiences.

Following panel deliberations, the wider community will have another opportunity for input when the Green Wedge Management Plan is put out on public consultation for a further three-months towards the end of 2018. 

MosaicLab is designing and facilitating the deliberative elements of the engagement process.

CITY OF KINGSTON CUSTOMER SERVICE CHARTER REFRESH

The City of Kingston is encouraging everyone that lives and works in the municipality to participate in co-designing a new customer service charter that supports and guides the Council's customer service delivery into the future.

Following a wider engagement process, a randomly selected panel of community members will meet over three days to consider and weigh up a wide range of input and views, including a wider engagement report.  The panel will respond to the following remit: Council wants to deliver great customer service. We need to find a balance between meeting diverse community expectations and budget constraints. How do we do this?

An employee panel made up of both appointed and randomly selected staff members from across Council’s various service areas will then use the community panel’s recommendations to develop a final version of the Customer Service Charter. Randomly selected panellists on the staff panel will be broadly representative of the City of Kingston’s diverse staff team.

MosaicLab is facilitating both the wider engagement process and panel deliberations, and will be working to support panellists in their task.

NEW TOWN RETAIL PRECINCT UPGRADE

City of Hobart is planning to upgrade the New Town shopping precinct to provide a more vibrant and accessible streetscape for the local community, and a more welcoming environment for pedestrians.

MosaicLab is working with Inspiring Place (a Hobart based consultancy) on this project. Kimbra White from our team will be facilitating the Project Action Team which will be comprised of community-based stakeholders from within the precinct and representatives of the New Town Community Association.

The Project Action Team will be working collaboratively with City officers over four meetings, to work through the options and ultimately identify a project that reflects the issues and priorities identified by the community in the previous engagement stage.

Barwon Downs borefield licence renewal

The Barwon Downs borefield is located in the foothills of the Otway Ranges approximately 70 kilometres south west of Geelong and 30 kilometres south east of Colac. The borefield is a crucial supply source for Geelong, the Surf Coast, Bellarine Peninsula and parts of Golden Plains Shire during prolonged dry periods.

The borefield is operated under a licence from Southern Rural Water. This licence was granted in 2004 and is due for renewal in June, 2019.

Barwon Water is inviting key stakeholders, customers and the broader community to help develop inform the application for the 2019 Barwon Downs borefield groundwater licence renewal.
