Since Council endorsed the Community Engagement Policy on 27 April 2021, Council has delivered over 230 engagement projects across Yarra Ranges. The lessons learned from these projects, feedback on the processes from the community, internal focus groups and advisory groups, have informed the draft revised Community Engagement Policy.

The draft revised Policy meets Council’s legislative requirement under the Local Government Act 2020 (Vic) s. stating, ‘A Council must adopt and maintain a community engagement policy.’ It also strengthens Council’s commitment to meaningful, transparent, and appropriate community engagement, and clarifies the roles and responsibilities of Council in seeking community input to inform decision-making.

Read the Draft revised policy and let us know if anything is missing or needs to be changed.
