There are a number of ways to express your opinion and be involved in the decision-making process of Council.
To understand the needs, issues, visions and constraints of the various user groups, interested parties and government bodies, Council makes use of Public Meetings.
The purpose of these meetings is to provide those who have an interest or concern in the future management of various projects the opportunity of expressing their particular thoughts, ideas and needs so that their merit may be considered in the overall formulation of management of community assets.
From time to time, Council will call for expressions of interest for members of the public to join a committee or project reference group which will provide advice to Council on a particular topic. Representatives of each group will include at least one Councillor, Council staff and members of the community.
These opportunities will be advertised on this website and in local newspapers.
Council recognises that community input is vital in order for proposals and projects to respond effectively to local needs and succeed.
