Earlier this year Council asked businesses and residents to share their vision for the Redcliffe Peninsula’s foreshore areas including suburbs like Margate. Community feedback outlined a strong desire for more activation in public spaces in order to:
- Allow for night-time entertainment;
- Encourage pop-up activations; and
- Create an inviting sense of place to enhance customer visitation.
From 15 July to 5 August, 2017 Moreton Bay Regional Council sought community input and ideas to help bring these desires to life in Margate.
The proposed civic park project will aim to revitalise the Margate business precinct and provide a space where residents and visitors can relax, catch up with friends, grab a bite to eat, shop and enjoy activities like pop-up events and live entertainment.

The Baynes Street consultation process ran from the 15 July to 5 August 2017 (Consultation One). This was the initial round of consultation and was designed to gauge the views of the community and businesses on the potential for a Civic Park to support the Margate community. Consultation One also tabled the option of a part road closure for Baynes Street in order to locate the proposed civic park in this location.
Community participation levels for Consultation One were high, with 203 online surveys completed and 13 submissions received.
