Council is now inviting feedback on the draft Community Engagement Policy. 

Council has reviewed its Community Engagement Policy, which is now a requirement of the Local Government Act 2020.

This policy outlines how we engage with the community; our principles and commitments to meaningful engagement processes, and our framework for selecting appropriate engagement methods. It also includes elements now required by the Local Government Act, including highlighting opportunities for deliberative engagement.
