The community is invited to have its say on Council’s Community Consultation Framework, which guides when and how we consult with the community.
Chief Executive Officer, Margot Stork encouraged residents to review the revised document, which sets out the principles that will underpin Council’s consultations. It also provides practical advice and direction on how Council will plan and implement its consultations.
“We need to ensure our practices are relevant and appropriate for the wide range of issues we consult about, and for the people we need to consult with,” Ms Stork said.
“We are keen to hear from community members on any aspect of the document and its implementation.”
The Community Consultation Framework (CCF) was last reviewed in 2014 and the current review is an action of the Council Plan 2017-27 (Year Two).
The revised framework has been updated to reflect the current best practice for community engagement, as set out by the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2).
The draft Community Consultation Framework can be viewed at Council service centres and on Council’s website until 13 May 2019.
