Reflections from the Chair of COSEP

Professor Tim Entwisle - Director & chief Executive of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria

I’m Professor Tim Entwisle. I’m the Director and Chief Executive of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria during the day.

[Vision: Level Crossing Removal Authority - New open space sign]

And in my evenings for the last 12 months I’ve been chairing COSEP, the Community Open Space Expert Panel.

[Vision: Professor Entwisle speaking]

So this final meeting is a chance to, in some ways, to sort of sit back and reflect a little bit.

[Vision: People discussing plans]

We’ve been right down in the detail, now we can see how it all comes together in these design plans.

[Vision: Artist’s impression of walking and cycling path and open space]

We’ll be able to see how it all looks for this whole 22.5 hectares; and the 17 kilometre long path for cycling and walking.

[Vision: Professor Entwisle speaking]

Really it’s tying the ribbon on that whole process.

[Vision: People discussing plans with Professor Entwisle]

Look for me it’s been a really good opportunity to work with the community as well as experts.

[Vision: Brochures - Professor Entwisle speaking]

And what I’ve found quite satisfying is the way that our community representatives have got in there and made sure we get the best for their local area.

[Vision: People discussing matters]

But also understanding all those complexities about, you know, what do the police need? What do we need for safety? But also what does the community want?

[Vision: Professor Entwisle speaking]

And everything was on the table.
