Conversations with Council

Share this:


Join the conversation about what is happening in your community at one of Council's regular pop-up conversation posts being held across the Shire in 2019.



In early 2019, Council unanimously agreed to continue their regular calendar of conversation posts to give community members a chance to speak directly with Councillors and senior Council staff at a convenient time and place. They also agreed to increase the number of posts from four to six.

Conversation posts are an informal way for community members to connect with directly with Council. Council has hosted conversation posts at community events and public spaces across the Shire since 2016, and have engaged with more than 1,300 community members during this time. The new calendar of 'Council Conversation Posts' responds to feedback that community members would like to see Councillors and senior staff attending these posts more regularly. 

Council will continue to hold additional project-based conversation posts as required. These will be advertised via Council's community events calendar, and each project's Have Your Say page.
