Our Community Engagement Strategy and Community Participation Plan
The Community Engagement Strategy and Community Participation Plan are designed to detail Council's engagement principles and notifications of planning functions.
The Community Engagement Strategy provides clear guidelines for staff and the community about how Council will inform/engage with the community about Council business and what engagement activities Council will undertake to involve the community in Council decision-making.
The accompanying Community Participation Plan looks more specifically at planning and development and details the specific measures Council will use to notify community members about developments, rezonings and other planning matters being proposed or taking place.
These documents are requirements for Council under both the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 and Local Government Act 1993.
