In 2014 Design Collaborative was engaged by Deerubbin Local Aboriginal Land Council (DLALC) to assist with their land rights claim for the former Parramatta Gaol under the Aboriginal Land Rights Act, 1983. Design Collaborative has worked closely with DLALC on this ongoing project, in the reactivation of adjoining land to provide a beneficial revenue stream to DLALC. 

The Land Council reinvest the revenue into local housing, health, employment, education and land management programs across the largest suite of privately owned land in Sydney’s West. Design Collaborative’s preparation and lodgement of Development Application for DLALC has allowed the Parramatta Gaol to host a diverse range of activities and events including historical and Ghost tours, security and emergency-services training, markets, weddings, music, events, festivals and conferences.
