Community Engagement Strategy

The Community Engagement Strategy 2022-24 guides how Council will engage so that a broad range of perspectives are sought and the community has a strong voice in Council’s decision-making.

The strategy includes:

  • Our principles of engagement
  • Who we engage
  • How we engage

Engaging with the community is one of the guiding principles for councils under the Local Government Act 1993 (section 8A) and is an important part of local democracy. Some engagement processes are already prescribed by legislation and Council’s practice will always meet these minimum requirements.

Council reviews the Strategy after each Council election.
