Our commitment to the community
We want to ensure that all of our engagement opportunities help to identify community needs and priorities so that Council’s decisions can align with community expectations.
Our revised Community Engagement Strategy details how we will engage with you and how you can have a say on projects that matter to you.
The revised Strategy incorporates the Community Participation Plan requirements under the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 (the EP&A Act) which states how and when we will engage the community about planning functions like policy-making and assessment.
In December 2020, Council also consolidated the 9 sets of development application (DA) notification requirements from the Development Control Plans, into a single and consistent set of requirements. The Consolidated Development Application Notification Requirements form an appendix to the Community Engagement Strategy.
We are striving for a best-practice approach to engagement to help us to create more liveable communities, better public policy and to ensure people are at the core of what we do.
Council is committed to making sure everyone can access the information they need in a format that is right for them. If you would you like the Community Engagement Strategy or other engagement resources supplied in another language or format, please call 1300 617 058 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
