How is the public consultation policy used?
The public consultation policy sets out the legal requirements under the Act, while the Community Engagement Strategy establishes the principles to follow to ensure a best practice approach when undertaking community engagement.
The proposed policy sets out Council’s legislated consultation requirements. However, in many instances Council will continue to adopt a best practice approach in line with its Community Engagement Strategy, going above and beyond the consultation requirements of the Act.
What has changed?
What has not changed?
Our commitment to best practice.We recognise our responsibility as a capital city council in seeking the views of all stakeholders impacted by our decisions. In many instances, this means advertising in state-wide media as well as in a newspaper circulating within the area of Council for issues which have impact beyond the city’s local community
