Draft Community Engagement Policy

Draft Community Engagement Policy

Council has adopted its Draft Community Engagement Policy for further consultation.

Community engagement and participation is an important element of the democratic process. An empowered community is one that actively participates to influence decisions that affect their lives.

We understand our community is diverse and facing many geographical and demographical challenges.

By strengthening relationships and listening to our community, we ensure that we can make better, more informed decisions and therefore deliver value to the public in all aspects of our work.


This policy document provides the community engagement and public participation framework for engagement activities undertaken by Council.

Have your say on the policy. Email submissions to Travis Fitzgibbon, Manager Community Engagement at 

Or you can get involved in Council's Our Say forum.

Submissions on the Draft Community Engagement Policy close Friday 22 January 2021.
