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 Community Engagement Strategy were adopted by Council on 22 November 2022 and outline what consultation you can expect from Council, whether it's large-scale plans involving the whole community or smaller neighbourhood projects.

The Community Engagement Policy provides a broad framework and policy direction for engagement.

The Community Engagement Strategy provides staff with direction on engagement planning and provides guidance on when and how staff should engage with the community.
