Community engagement

Community Engagement is a planned process whereby Council will work with the whole of the community to address issues affecting their well-being.

Community engagement is critical to Council in that:

  • It ensures communities can participate in the decisions that affect them.
  • It strengthens and enhances the relationship between Council and the community.

Council's Community Engagement Policy recognises that all members of the community have a right and responsibility to participate in their community’s future.

The Council will inform, consult, involve, collaborate with and empower citizens at appropriate times and in appropriate ways to engage the community in achieving the vision for the city.

In fulfilling its Charter under the Local Government Act 1993, Council will engage with the whole of the community as part of its decision-making processes.
