About

About: 

Golden Plains Shire Council recently sought expressions of interest from community groups and local organisations who would like to host a Councillor/s at a meeting of their group between July and December 2021.

This new initiative is part of the Councillor Engagement commitment for 2021. It is an opportunity for Councillors to listen and learn more about individual groups in Golden Plains Shire, their work in the local community, and current ideas and challenges for the group. The attending Councillor/s will report back to Council on the group and their engagement experience.

The Golden Plains Shire Councillor/s will attend the full meeting and will be available for an additional 30 minutes before or after the meeting to speak directly with group members. Please note: The Councillor/s will not speak or deliver a presentation at the meeting. 

Engagement Update

Thank you to all community groups and local organisations that submitted an Expression of Interest. This process was open from Tuesday 20 April to Tuesday 1 June, 2021, with applications able to be completed online, by email, by mail or in person at a Customer Service Centre.
