Consultation is an important means of gathering community feedback. The information assists Council to understand the community’s view on a whole range of subjects.These may include opportunities for feedback on specific local issues through to planning for the future needs of the municipality.
Council consults with the community through planning consultation forums, interviews, resident surveys, invitations for submissions, committees, public meetings, information nights, direct mail to residents, the provision of drafts and exhibits for public comment, on-site meetings, online surveys and at Special Committee Meetings where residents are given the opportunity to comment on any issue.

During this election period, most community consultations and surveys have been paused. For more information, view Council’s election period policy here.
