A new approach to community engagement

Do you want to be part of the conversations that influence decisions and make Council a better place to live, work and play?

Have your say on community engagement.

The draft Community Engagement Policy was developed in November 2020. The development of the draft Policy and Guidelines reflected Council’s commitment to best practice engagement and aligned with our obligations under the Local Government Act 2020.

To compliment this policy, Council has developed draft Community Engagement Guidelines, a resource that outlines how Council will engage with our community.
