Engaging Glen Eira

How can we best involve you in Council planning and decisions?

By understanding what is important to our community, we are able to make informed and transparent decisions about projects that affect our residents, rate payers, and local businesses. Our first Community Engagement Policy was adopted by Council in 2017. Recent advances in community engagement practice and the adoption of the Local Government Act 2020, which requires councils to adopt and maintain a commmunity engagement policy, have provided us with an opportunity to review our Policy.

The draft Community Engagement Policy is our commitment to delivering high quality engagement for our community. Everytime we have an important decision to make around strategic planning or policy development, we will first ask you and our community what you think. Importantly, we want to make sure that at every opportunity, we hear from a broad range of people so that we can be sure that the decisions we make are truly representative of Glen Eira.

How to get involved:

  1. Click here to read our draft Community Engagement Policy
  2. Click here to read "Our Promises to the Community"- there are some questions in the survey relating to these promises
  3. Click here to read the FAQs to find out more about community engagement and why we're reviewing our Policy.
  4. Using the Ideas tool, let us know what great community engagement looks like to you
  5. Using the Survey tool, tell us what you think of our draft Policy

This consultation will conclude on 3 February 2021. We will review all feedback received and make any necessary changes to the Policy. The final Policy will go to Council at its February meeting for adoption.
