Community Panels involve local residents in decision making and community building
As part of our community planning process, Council has established seven Community Panels in rural communities within the Local Government Area.
The Community Panel is the key group for Council to consult with when we are seeking to undertake engagement in those communities about Council decisions or future plans.
Each Community Panel has implementing or is in the process of designing a Community Plan, developed by local residents, which includes projects and events to improve community life.
Check out the Community Panel Map to see what Community Panel governs your area. Anyone can join a Community Panel and volunteer their time. You might like to help with projects and events, become a member of the panel, or just be a helping hand when working bees or activities are taking place. The level of engagement is entirely up to you.
For more information or to get involved in your local Community Panel, phone our Partnering and Community Engagement Team on 1300 87 83 87 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Below is further infomation about each panel.
