    Your invitation to the Port Capacity Design and Specification workshops
     
    As part of the Port Capacity Project to redevelop Webb Dock, an extensive buffer program has been developed to revitalise the Port’s buffer areas that separate the port operations at Webb Dock from the expanding city and nearby communities.
     
    Last year, a number of ‘conversation starter’ design concepts were released to gain feedback about what could be included in the buffers. The results were summarised and presented in a report titled Phase 1: Design Brief Feedback and was used by our designers to create the preliminary designs.
     
    Since then, we’ve worked hard to incorporate more of your suggestions into the updated designs. Now, before we finalise the designs we would like to invite you to attend a workshop with our Project Team.
