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.
