The aim is to achieve a broader range of views to assist Council in planning services better to meet community needs and aspirations and to provide residents greater opportunities to contribute to and influence outcomes which directly affect their lives.
The intention is to harness the benefits of on-line engagement whilst retaining the best of print and face-to-face consultation.
The Community Engagement Strategy was adopted by Council on 7 April 2009. It will be reviewed in two years.
In keeping with the principles underpinning the strategy, Council makes available this web-based version of the document.
