We welcomed your feedback on our updated Community Consultation Policy
Update: May 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of South Australia published restrictions (Notice No 2 in the South Australian Government Gazette) on 8 April 2020 around the use of face-to-face public consultation methodologies, which includes public meetings. These restrictions have prompted temporary amendments to the City of Adelaide Community Consultation Policy.

Following discussion Council approved temporary amendments to the Community Consultation Policy on 12 May 2020. The amendments to the Policy will remain in place for 28 days after the Notice No 2 is lifted.


Update: May 2018

Your feedback contributed the production of the final draft of the Community Consultation Policy for approval by Council.
Key changes made to the draft Community Consultation Policy as a result of the feedback received were discussed at the Council meeting of 8 May 2018.

    Section 50 of the Local Government Act 1999 (SA) (the Act) requires councils to have a public consultation policy. A public consultation policy sets out a council’s requirements under the Act to ensure it meets its legislated responsibilities (as required by law) to consult with the community as part of its decision-making processes.

    The content of City of Adelaide’s public consultation policy has been reviewed and updated to reflect amendments to the Act.

    As stipulated by Section 50 (6) of the Act, the reviewed policy is required to go out for public consultation for a minimum of one (1) month.
