Community participation in decision making

One of our goals is to inform the Bayside community and provide opportunities to participate in decision-making. Read about our highlights from 2016/17.

Wellbeing for All Ages and Abilities Strategy

Between January and March 2017, more than 530 Bayside residents participated in a variety of engagement activities. This included 400 residents participating in an online survey. Their terrific ideas shaped our approach to maintaining and improving public health and wellbeing for the community. Read more about the Wellbeing for All Ages and Abilities Strategy.

Highett Structure Plan review (stage one)

Approximately 300 residents, visitors and business owners shared ideas in stage one. We discussed how Highett can accommodate an expected population increase of almost 2,000 residents over the next 10 years, while retaining key characteristics. Read more about the structure plan.

Making the Bay Trail safer

Seventy pedestrians and cyclists who use the Bay Trail provided their feedback. This guided the redesign of the trail to ensure greater safety and accommodate increased capacity in areas such the path between Sandown Street and Bay Street, Brighton.

A modern library service

Recommendations for the future of Bayside Library Services were developed for Council consideration from our internal service review process. The recommendations were based on consultation with library users and non-users, research and library best practice. These insights will ensure we are providing a sustainable service that meets the community needs now and into the future.
