We've drafted the COVID-19 Community Recovery Plan and we're looking for your input.

The plan presents the impacts of COVID-19 and an analysis of these impacts before presenting the priority areas for supporting the community recovery.

These priority areas include a list of initiatives that can be used to support the activities and planning of community, organisations, local government and others wanting to contribute to the community’s recovery from COVID-19.

Council’s approach to Community Recovery is a commitment to empower those who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 in a community-led recovery process.

We are listening and would like to further explore your views about how Council is coordinating this recovery and how you want to participate.

We are interested in hearing from all community and stakeholders, even if you have taken part in consultation before.

This plan contributes to Council’s role in coordinating municipal-level recovery as designated in the Municipal Emergency Management Plan and enabling community participation in recovery in accordance with Part 6 of the Emergency Management Act 2013.

How can you get involved?

There are many ways to contribute to the project.

Please start by reviewing the Plan (on the right) then take part in the survey below or contact us directly for assistance reviewing the plan and your options for feedback.

You can find the results of the Initial Consultation in the Engagement Report.

You can also find out more in the FAQ section.
