Welcome to Have Your Say, Glen Eira City Council’s online community engagement hub!

This is where Council and the community come together to discuss projects that will help make our city liveable and well designed; accessible and well connected; safe, healthy and inclusive; clean and sustainable; and informed and engaged.

We value your input and appreciate your interest in contributing to how we live, work, study and play in Glen Eira.

Our Approach

Council’s approach to community engagement has been informed by public participation approaches outlined by the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2), reports from the Victorian Auditor-General’s Office (VAGO) and proposed changes to the Local Government Act which aim to strengthen transparent decision-making in the public interest.

IAP2 is an international organisation advancing the practice of public participation. The IAP2 framework is underpinned by values that are aimed at ensuring organisations make better decisions that reflect the interests and concerns of potentially affected people.

The public participation principles released by VAGO in 2015 include responsiveness, transparency and integrity, openness, accountability, inclusiveness and awareness. These provide a basis for the community engagement principles proposed in the draft Local Government Act currently on public exhibition, and this Community Engagement Strategy.

Council commitment to improved community engagement is reflected in the Council and Community Plan 2017–2021, which aims for ‘a transparent and accountable Council that engages its residents in decision-making.’ The community engagement model below has been adapted from IAP2 and shows four interconnected elements that outline our approach.
