Community Engagement Strategy

The Local Government Act 1993 requires Councils to establish and implement a strategy called its 'Community Engagement Strategy' for engagement with the local community when developing its plans, policies and programs, as well as for the purpose of determining its activities (other than routine administrative matters). The strategy provides the information necessary for carrying out community engagement activities.

The Community Participation Plan (CPP) outlines when and how the community can expect to participate in planning matters that affect them.

The CPP applies to plan making and development assessment matters within the Shire, including applications and proposal that need to be assessed and determined by Council as well as planning matters within the Shire that need to be assessed and determined by local or regional planning panels.
