Thank you for visiting.
Entrance to the Leonora Cemetery Feb 2010
I was asked to prepare a creative statement in response to request by Leonora Council in February 2010.
This brief documents initial consultations and intended community consultation toward developing a design plan.
Initial conversations with councilors, interested locals including long time Leonora and Gwalia residents, the headmaster from the District High School Mr Greg Fisher, and indigenous community health workers Geraldine Hogart and Cheryl Cotterill confirmed there is rich interest and diversity to be gained from a consultative process. These are some of the initial responses related to the preliminary design brief as presented to the council:
PURPOSE OF CONTINUED COMMUNITY CONSULTATION AND FEEDBACK:
Press release – target Kalgoorlie newspapers and local newsletter – Shire website.
Comments book at the exhibition – feedback via web site – email or regular mail invited
This website has been developed to assist with information sharing and information regarding the process of consultation in Leonora. It will also provide additional information about terms of reference and design development.

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION TERMS OF REFERENCE
Community consultation is an important way for the Leonora Shire Council to survey the opinions of local ratepayers and residents on a range of issues. In this instance the development of a new entrance and possible future plan for developments at the Leonora Cemetery
An initial design to 'get the ball rolling' interprets ideas of cooliman/panning off dish obelisk, headstones and gateways. This scheme will be modified after initial consultation indicates the stones may be problematic for indigenous beliefs.
