Community Engagement Policy

The Community Engagement Policy 2021 replaces Council’s 2018 Policy and has been updated to comply with the new Victorian Local Government Act 2020.

The intent of the legislation is to assist Councils to build capacity in community engagement and for deliberative engagement to become usual practice, rather than an exceptional exercise.

This policy confirms our commitment to the community on the principles and values that guide our community engagement. 

The new Policy was adopted by Council on 23 February 2021.
