Community Engagement Strategy

Community engagement describes the ongoing interactive relationship between Council and the community. 

When Councils have a good relationship with their community, they are more likely to understand the range of needs and aspirations of the community and ultimately make informed decisions. 

Community engagement encourages communities to be informed and to participate in the decision-making processes that guide the development of the services that the Council provides.

The aim of the Community Engagement Strategy is to strengthen and formalise Council’s relationship with the community by establishing goals and principles for community engagement.
