Community engagement strengthens the links between Council and the community, ensures we are aware of and responsive to your concerns and improves our efficiency and effectiveness. The new Community Engagement Policy and Matrix was adopted by Council on 28 February 2017 and outlines what consultation you can expect from Council whether it's large scale plans involving the whole community or smaller neighbourhood projects.

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.
