WHAT IS COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT?
Community engagement is a two-way interaction between Council and the community, where we ask the community for input into Council decisions and actions. Community engagement is also often referred to as 'community consultation' or 'public participation'. Community engagement activities commonly include workshops, community reference or advisory groups, surveys, focus groups, written submissions, and meetings with community groups.
WHY SHOULD I SIGN UP?
Signing up helps keep you informed about relevant opportunities to contribute to Council's decision-making processes.
WHAT WILL SIGNING UP MEAN FOR ME?
Once you have signed up, you may be contacted in relation to engagement opportunities relevant to you, such as workshops for residents of your town. You may also receive occasional updates via email about opportunities that are open to the public, such as surveys and community workshops.
WHY DOES THE REGISTER INCLUDE DEMOGRAPHIC DETAILS?
Providing information such as your location, gender, and age helps Council make sure the relevant community members are involved (e.g. for a project focused specifically on young people, women, or people living in the North of the Shire). Your details will be kept private and confidential and will only be used for the purposes of the Community Engagement Register.
