Community Engagement and Participation

The Tweed community are being encouraged to have their say about Council’s Draft Community Engagement and Participation Plan which is currently on exhibition. The Plan sets out a whole-of-council commitment to community engagement where the Tweed community is:

  • encouraged to make recommendations to Council
  • informed about issues and decisions that could significantly affect their future
  • able to raise issues and have their say, in a way and at a time that suits them
  • confident that their views have been considered and they will have access to feedback.

The Draft Community Engagement and Participation Plan combines the Community Engagement Strategy (a requirement of the Local Government Act 1993 adopted by Council in August 2018) with new content that addresses requirements for a Community Participation Plan under the Environmental Protection and Assessment Act 1979.

The result is an integrated document that makes it easier for you to understand how, when and on what you can expect Council to engage with you, no matter what part of Council is managing the project.
