Public meetings & consultations

Large and small projects undertaken by Council require consultation with residents of our district to ensure the Council has relevant and up-to-date information.

There are a variety of ways for the Council to do this, such as:

  • street meetings for affected residents
  • workshops with steering and reference groups
  • public meetings
  • the Vision/Action/Progress Café process.

All of these meetings will be notified in a number of ways with the most popular being via the Community Noticeboard page in the Northern Outlook. Where local residents are affected by a project Council will communicate with a ‘target’ group to ensure local opinions are canvassed. Our Let's talk page has the information about public meetings and workshops for each project/plan, and things we are currently consulting on.
