The Council is committed to engaging with the community, agencies and other key stakeholders in the development of our district's plans, policies strategies and bylaws.
The following table sets out our upcoming consultation schedule and provides some background on each of the topics we intend to engage on over the next year.
Please note that these timeframes are only approximate and that they may change. There may also be other items that the Council would like your feedback on and our consultation programme will be updated as necessary.
