Significance and Engagement Policy


Engagement is about involving the community in the decisions that affect them. It is important to us that we understand the community views and preferences on issues, proposals, decisions, assets and activities we provide.

Council recognises issues range in degrees of significance and require different levels of engagement. For example, less significant issues require little engagement while other more significant decisions require a greater degree of engagement. This Significance and Engagement Policy provides the Council and the community with guidelines about significant issues and appropriate levels of engagement to use.

The Significance and Engagement Policy was adopted on 28 June 2018.
