Through our Queensland office, Reclink Australia has been working with Lendlease to create a series of ‘Welcome Events’ for Lendlease’s new developments. The primary focus of these events is to encourage community interaction and engagement between residents and community groups, be they new or existing, in order to build strong relationships, community capacity, and add social value to the communities being created. Welcome Events have included, movie nights, soccer games, sporting club sign up sessions and other activities that create a direct connection to the local community.
Over the past 50 years, Lendlease has created and delivered more than 50 master-planned communities in Australia and overseas. People are at the heart of Lendlease’s work and the business takes a holistic approach to master planning, focusing on the lifestyle and community benefits to provide a strong sense of belonging for its community’s residents.
Through the partnership Reclink has supported Lendlease to deliver on their goal to create a ‘sense of belonging’ for people living in their communities through the delivery of quarterly resident events in three of its QLD master-planned communities, including Yarrabilba, Springfield Lakes, and Fernbrooke Ridge.
Reclink and Lendlease work from a community engagement and development approach to ensure each event is responsive to community identified areas of interest, and which maximise community involvement. At the core of this program is the goal of creating stronger, more inclusive communities.
