Community Engagement Framework

Community engagement is an essential part of government planning, policy development and service delivery. It improves the quality of decisions and is an important part of being responsive to community and stakeholder needs.

Council’s Community Engagement Framework consists of the following components:

  • Community Engagement Policy - states mandate to, in accordance with its Open Government Policy to provide opportunities to participate in decision making on issues of interest to the community.
  • Community Engagement Protocol - guides Council staff on when and how to engage the community for different situations and decision types.
  • Community Engagement Toolkit - procedures and internal staff resources for employing the engagement methods described in the Protocol.

We prepare project-specific engagement strategies per project/decision type, which are ‘statements of intent’ to the community and stakeholders about how we will conduct community engagement relative to the project/decision type.
