Council is committed to engaging with residents wherever possible. We want to encourage local knowledge and input, build community ownership in Council projects, involve the community in our plans for improvement and share successes.
Council is reviewing the way we conduct community forums. The first half of 2017 will involve engagement with residents over the Council Plan 2017-2021, the four-year strategic document that each new Council must create.
A working group involving Councillors and staff is looking at different ways of conducting community engagement beyond the finalisation of the Council Plan. When this new model is finalised, it will be widely publicised.
