Community Engagement Policy

Community Engagement Policy Review

Your Opinion Matters logo.jpg

Council is currently developing a new Community Engagement Policy, with input from the community.

The purpose of our Community Engagement Policy is to formalise Council’s commitment to engaging with communities across Murrindindi Shire through the use of appropriate, effective and inclusive engagement practices.

We want our Policy and practices to support the best possible engagement with community members and we want to make it easier for you to let us know what you think about a plan, initiative or project.

Thanks to all those who were involved in the initial round of consultation, either by attending one of our focus group sessions or by completing the survey.

The feedback we received will help us gain a better understanding of how we can best engage with you and will help shape Council's new Community Engagement Policy.

Next steps

We are now busy working on a draft of the new Community Engagement Policy. The draft will be made available for public comment in late January 2021. 

Once feedback is received and considered, the final draft of the Community Engagement Policy will then go to Council for adoption.
