What are the advantages of engaging online?
Engaging online allows you to have your say in the Council’s decision making process in your own time and comfort:
How do I submit my feedback?
Your feedback can be submitted via the online forums, quick polls and
surveys relevant to each of the projects currently open for
consultation. To participate simply register with us, and start sharing
your ideas and comments. Alternatively you can contact the relevant
project officer responsible, their contact details are in the FAQ
section of each project.
What happens to my feedback / comments?
All comments, ideas and suggestions are collated and used by the relevant project officer to inform the development of strategies, programs and activities, or to gain an insight into community views and opinions.
Often, feedback provided online is used in conjunction with other face-to-face consultation activities such as workshops, meetings, open days or surveys.
When each consultation closes, all contributions are compiled into a
report, which will be presented to Council when considering the
A copy of the report will also be posted on YourSay Adelaide for reference, removing any identification.
All feedback provided during consultation will be considered, however
this does not mean that every suggestion can be taken on board and
adopted as proposed.
Is it anonymous?
Yes! Your privacy is totally protected because the 'Your Say Adelaide' is hosted and moderated by an external independent organisation, Bang the Table.
Council only have access to your details to inform you of up and
coming consultations that you have selected as areas of interest.
What feedback tools do you have available on the Your Say Adelaide site?
What's the difference between a formal submission form & a survey?
It is Council policy that a formal submission is required for some
specific projects or decisions, or to fulfill a legislative requirement.
These are usually for strategic decisions (e.g. Annual Budget) and also
include the provision of a lease/license over community land or within
Park Lands. A formal submission requires the contact name and address of
respondents which becomes public information and is provided to Council
for their consideration. For more information view our Public
Communication and Consultation Policy.
How is the site moderated?
All moderation is carried out by Bang the Table and is independent of
Adelaide City Council. The moderators do not edit or alter any comments
and will only remove comments deemed to be significantly off topic,
offensive or malicious, in which case they are removed from the site
immediately. Refer to the Moderation guidelines.
Who can I contact about Your Say Adelaide?
