What do you want to do in the public space and why?

Create a temporary wet season market place at the Esplanade near the new playground (that has no amenities) using small containers as market stalls that can be hired individually. Family focused.

How you will make this project happen?

Rent as opposed to purchasing small containers from a local supplier and fitting them out with a small amount of infrastructure and solar panels, shade and counter space. Installing at the beginning of the wet season and finish by creating shade between each container.

When will the project start and finish? How long will it take?

2-3 months to establish and build, installation around November-December in time for Christmas.

What permits or whose permission will you need to implement the project? What do you already have and what will you need to obtain?

Darwin City Council.

How will you deliver the project, including how many people will be involved and any partnerships you have developed?

Container Company, market stall holders, local builders, solar provider companies

How will you know your project is successful?

How many people the market attracts, how full the market is with stall holders, does it make the area busier with amenities.
