Council's Community Engagement Policy sets the direction for meaningful, authentic and responsive engagement across the organisation. 

It outlines who Council will engage with - including why, how and when we will engage - to ensure that a coordinated and consistent approach is taken across all areas of Council, and that the community is at the heart of all decision making.

The Community Engagement Policy was endorsed by Council on Tuesday, 27 April, 2021.

Council provides a diverse range of services and is trusted with a range of decision-making powers so that it can govern in the best interests of the local community. These powers must be exercised properly and impartially, with integrity and in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020 (Act).  

A number of functions performed by Council have the potential to lead to conflicts of interest arising. This, in itself, is not necessarily unethical or a sign of wrongdoing – conflicts are an inevitable fact of organisational life. However, conflicts create risks and should therefore be identified and managed appropriately to ensure Council’s continued transparency, accountability and integrity, and to protect the public interest.
