Draft Community Engagement Framework and Draft Community Participation Plan Public Exhibition

The Draft Community Engagement Framework and Draft Community Participation Plan will be on exhibition for public comment from Friday, 4 October to Monday, 4 November 2019.

The drafts have been prepared to provide a consistent and best practice approach to ongoing and meaningful engagement with local community members and stakeholders. The Draft Community Participation Plan specifically targets engagement on land use planning matters.

The plans will expand on consulting with communities about policies and land use planning as well as provide input for the design of community facilities and a range of other Council activities.

The objectives of the Draft Community Engagement Framework and Draft Community Participation Plan are to:

  • guide Council staff, and those undertaking engagement on behalf of Council, in how to plan and deliver quality and inclusive engagement
  • guide Council on when and how community engagement should occur, who should be engaged, and how outcomes should be reported on issues or decisions for which Council is responsible
  • strengthen relationships and increase engagement with the community, local business, community groups and other stakeholders
  • invite the community to participate in land use planning and provide guidance on how the community can have a say on different types of land use planning documents on a general scale and/or on a site-specific scale.

The Draft Community Engagement Framework and Draft Community Participation Plan will be available for viewing from Friday, 4 October to Monday, 4 November 2019 from 8:30am to 5pm at Council’s Administration Building, 366 George Street, Windsor and may be also be viewed on Council’s website www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au or via Your Hawkesbury Your Say www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au
