Consultation has concluded. The draft policy is being prepared to be presented to Council Meeting in February 2021 for consideration for adoption.

We've drafted our first Community Engagement Policy and we're looking for your input.

The policy outlines Council’s approach to Community Engagement and our commitment to use appropriate, effective and inclusive engagement practices to support meaningful conversations with our diverse communities and stakeholders.

We are listening and would like to further explore your views about how Council undertakes community consultation and engagement, and how you want to participate.

We are interested in hearing from all community and stakeholders, regardless of whether you have or have not taken part in consultation before.

This Policy will be applied to the development of the Community Vision and Council Plan and aligns with the Mitchell Shire Community Engagement Framework 2018. The policy also meets the requirements of the Local Government Act 2020.

How can you get involved?

There are many ways to contribute to the project.

Please start by reviewing the Policy and Community Engagement Framework, then take part in the survey or contact us directly to discuss more about the policy.

You can also find out more in the FAQs.
