Email Link   Community Engagement Strategy

Council supports the right of citizens to participate in decision making that affects their future, from the development of Council’s 10-year Community Strategic Plan to day-to-day activities.

The Community Engagement Strategy is Council’s guide to involve the Tweed community in strategic planning and decision-making processes.

The Community Engagement Strategy is based upon the key stages of engagement prescribed by the International Association for Public Participation – inform, consult, involve, collaborate and empower - and defines the effective engagement methods and identifies the broad categories of council projects that require engagement.

The Tweed’s various stakeholders are identified in the Engagement Strategy – including its citizens, ratepayers, business groups, community organisations and interests groups – to achieve representation from a broad community and ensure Council receives quality information which represents the views of the Tweed community. In the interests of social justice, the strategy incorporates numerous engagement methods to involve people who can otherwise find it difficult to participate in public discussion.
