Public Consultation

Council is interested in hearing from stakeholders about its projects and initiatives. In conducting consultation activities, Council is seeking the involvement of its local communities and gaining feedback that may influence its final decisions.

Under the Local Government Act 1999, Council is bound to consult with the community on various proposals. In other cases, the legislation does not set specific requirements, but Council develops a customised consultation program in line with its public consultation policy.

Central to this is the willingness of both community and government to build ongoing relationships. Over time, this contributes to a cycle that includes:

  • Collecting information
  • Sharing information
  • Mutual communication and deliberation
  • Participatory decision making and
  • Continuing evaluation and improvement of community engagement processes.

The following lists the Council’s current engagement and consultation projects, what stage they are at, and how you can get involved.
