The draft Community Engagement Framework outlines a Council commitment to engage its community to the best of its potential. Whilst Council has coordinated some highly effective community engagement over the last two years, there is also considerable room for improvement in the effective planning, process and delivery of community and stakeholder engagement across the organisation.

The intent of this framework and supporting documents is to raise the standard of community engagement being facilitated across Council by strengthening the planning, active participation and feedback components that will be undertaken within each process.
