Have your say on our new principles for community engagement before the first stage of consultation closes on Sunday, 22 November 2020.
Improving how we include our community in Council decision making starts with reviewing our Community and Stakeholder Engagement Policy. This document sets the rules for when, why and how we’ll ask what you think about a wide variety of topics so you can contribute to and influence Council decisions.
As part of this policy review, we must adopt five engagement principles set by the new Local Government Act 2020. The principles aren’t negotiable, but how we define and apply them is.
We’ll use your feedback on the principles to draft a new Community and Stakeholder Engagement Policy. Then, you’ll have another opportunity to share your thoughts when we consult on the draft policy in December 2020/January 2021.
