Engaging with the community
The Council's Community Engagement Framework
The Council has developed a Community Engagement Framework that demonstrates our committment to building partnerships with a range of stakeholders, as well as to seeking greater community involvement in the activities and decision making process of Council.
Alongside this, the Council has designed a Community Engagement Schedule of Activity which outlines our annual public consultation activity for the next three years, as well as upcoming major consultation projects.
