What you'll do

We are going to take a walk from the historic woolstores of Teneriffe through the commercial heart of Newstead to explore this part of the Urban Renewal project in Brisbane. We shall see the woolstores and industrial buildings, now converted to businesses, shops, cafes and apartments, and spot the reminders of this area's industrial and commercial past. Along the way, learn about the events and factors that influenced and informed the process of guiding and informing the renewal of the area. Put yourself in the role of a civic leader, deciding how the area could and should continue to develop. What will be the legacy from today that captures the interest of tomorrow's citizens?

I have lived and worked in Teneriffe and Newstead for over fifteen years. I am passionate about the area and its rich history. In my professional life I am a Town Planner and Development Consultant with over thirty years experience - primarily in the field of Urban Regeneration. I was heavily involved in the regeneration of the Teneriffe and Newstead areas as part of my job with Urban Renewal Brisbane for over five years. Nowadays I am a self-employed town planning consultant, and the President of the Teneriffe Progress Association, a local community group.
