Community Engagement Strategy

Council adopted the updated Community Engagement Strategy on 11 December 2019See the news item for further information.

_____________________________________________________

In 2014 Council engaged the services of local government specialist to evaluate Council’s community engagement practices, set long-term goals and develop a framework for resident involvement in decision making. This resulted in a strategy being adopted by Council in November 2014.

The Community Engagement Strategy is now 5 years old and due for review.

This coincides with an amendment to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act) which requires councils to prepare a Community Participation Plan for land use planning matters by 1 December 2019.

Minor changes have been made to the actions outlined within the strategy, a section inserted to address EP&A Act requirements and references updated.

Did we get it right?

It's now your turn to have a say about how we involve the community in our decision making processes.
