Engagement summary report

The Engagement Summary Report presents the broad range of opinions, ideas and aspirations provided by community members and stakeholders during the public comment period, from March – July 2018. The feedback has been collated and categorised, to understand topics, themes, demographics and levels of support using both qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques.

Feedback from the community, stakeholders and prospective park visitors was sought via:

  • Online surveys, through the Engage Victoria platform and a General Population targeted survey;
  • Display phase in-situ at Albert Park and Point Nepean National Park; and
  • Volunteer overnight testers at Point Nepean National Park.

Engagement Summary Report – CANOPY Eco Sleeper Pod Pilot, September 2018, is available to download from the document library.

Overview

The CANOPY – Eco Sleeper Pod pilot is an exciting initiative from Parks Victoria, designed to help protect our environment for the future by connecting more visitors with the natural beauty of Victoria’s parks.

The pilot program will run for three months. During this time, we want to get feedback from visitors like you about the design, amenity, accessibility and visual impact of the pods, as well as the kinds of activities you’d like to experience.

Accessibility

Eco Sleeper Pods can help increase the accessibility of our parks. We’re seeking feedback from current and prospective visitors with a broad range of abilities. This will ensure we provide an inclusive experience that enables visitors with a disability, their families and carers to get the health and wellbeing benefits from visiting a state or national park.

About the CANOPY Eco Sleeper Pods

Using sustainable practices and environmentally-friendly materials such as renewable timber, Eco Sleeper Pods sit lightly in their surroundings. The pods being tested during the pilot program are from the following Australian architectural firms – JAWS Architects + Pod Matrix, and Troppo Architects + Oscar Building, with the addition of CABN for the overnight experience testing.
