The Kaniva Social Infrastructure Feasibility Study is an exciting opportunity to plan for and manage the future social infrastructure needs of a rural community amid real contextual pressures at local, regional, state and global scales. Central to the project is engaging with the community to understand their existing assets as well as their desires and expectations for the future.

Community precinct planning is not only about identifying the underlying community sentiments, but encouraging community positions to be connected to capacity and awareness, and planning together the future that is desired, as well as how to get there. Four workshops with residents and community leaders of Kaniva and surrounding towns have been completed and a draft report has been provided for community feedback. Many projects identified through the study will soon move on to a funding application stage.
