Join us at your local Community Conversations

The Community Conversations program means you can meet Council staff at a venue near you, receive updates about your community, and ask questions.

Community Conversations also help Council staff and Councillors better understand the things that matter to you and your community.

We look forward to seeing you between April and June. See the list below for dates, times and locations. If you can’t attend a Community Conversation nearest you, please feel free to attend in another location.

Community Conversations will only take place once this year due to the upcoming local government elections.

There is no need to book, just turn up on the day. Everybody is welcome.

Please click +Follow at the top of this web page to be automatically informed of scheduled dates for our next series of Conversations.

Come along to learn about:

  • The work we are doing on our long term financial sustainability and the action plan that will guide us
  • The introduction of a single Local Environmental Plan for the MidCoast, and
  • How to have your say on the Community Strategic Plan and the Delivery Program and Operational Plan.
