Community Planning Step 1: Formation

  • Attend one of Council’s information sessions on community planning and encourage other community members to come along
  • Talk to one of Council’s Community Development officers about community planning

  • Form a steering group of 3-5 people who can help you

  • Contact local community groups and clubs to talk about community planning

  • Organise an local information session about community planning (Council has Small Grants to help you do this)

  • Ask interested people to join a community planning group (you will need 10 - 15 people)
