    Research output: Book/ReportProject report


    This report presents the ‘pre-greening’ findings for Sheils Reserve for Moreland City Council. It provides an overview of how residents living close to Sheils Reserve perceived and used the Reserve and nearby Moonee Ponds Creek before greening improvements were undertaken. These findings will be compared with the outcomes from ‘post-greening actions’ interviews to be conducted after planned improvements have been implemented at the Reserve. The aim of the pre- and post- qualitative design is to understand how the new, improved greenspace will impact local residents’ perceptions and uses of the Reserve and surrounding spaces, and includes outcomes relating to connection with place or nature, and health and wellbeing.
