Council Priorities

Each year Council undertakes a range of community consultation and engagement activities to inform the setting of Council priorities and updating of the Council Plan 2017-2021 and Annual Budget.

This year, Council seeking community feedback via:

  • A community survey of 500 randomly selected telephone interviews
  • An online and paper based community survey
  • An online ‘Budget Simulator’
  • Face-to-face pop-up engagement sessions at Council events from December to April
