Thanks for participating in our Community Conversations

We were pleased to be able to get back out to you with our recently completed Community Conversation program!

Councillors and senior staff were out and about at 16 locations between April and June to meet with interested members of the community.

These conversations are a way for us to keep you informed about what is happening in your patch, and a great way for us to hear what is important to you and your community.

Community Conversations are an opportunity to meet your new Councillors and let us know your ideas and concerns to help inform our future planning.

What you told us

Below are the key themes you told us were important to you prior to the Community Conversations held during May - June 2022.

Data from community conversations

At the sessions, which were attended by over 530 people, the main themes of the conversations were:

  • Roads – the current condition of our roads, the impact of wet weather on them, our funding models and the commitment by Council to include an extra $7.5 million in the 2022-23 budget to address our local roads
  • Development – understanding areas that can and can’t be developed in particular locations, the role Council plays in development, how decisions are made and how the community can have their say
  • Open space and recreational facilities – the importance of these areas to the community and ideas for improvement. We will be talking to our community more about this as we develop our Open Space Strategy

What's next?

We are currently reviewing our Community Conversations program, and the feedback we have received from it, to ensure we continue to meet the community’s needs in future sessions.
