Community Engagement Framework
Council is committed to community engagement and ensuring that the community is involved in planning and decision-making. This serves to both strengthen the links between Council and the community, ensure we are aware of and responsive to community concerns, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization.
At the Council meeting on 11 October 2016 the Administrator resolved to exhibit the draft Community Engagement Policy and Framework for the Northern Beaches Council. The Summary of Submissions and the final Community Engagement Policy and Matrix were reported to Council, and adopted, on 28 February 2017.
The adopted framework consists of:
Community Engagement Policy provides a broad framework and policy direction for engagement.
Community Engagement Matrix provides staff with direction on engagement planning and provides guidance on when and how staff should engage with the community.
