Community Forums

Have an opinion? Want to be heard?

Community forums are an excellent way of putting forward your point of view, as well as hearing what other members of the community have to say on issues which are important to you. These public meetings enable the Council, community and other organisations to work collaboratively. The objective of Council's forum is to improve community engagement and communication by creating an opportunity for interactive discussion of emerging issues for Council and the community.
