Having a say in the development of council plans and policies helps to make sure that your needs are taken into account and the final plan or policy benefits you and your community.
Draft plans are usually put on public exhibition for at least 28 days in which time you can submit your comment to Council.
Some of the plans you can have a say in include your council's:
Operational Plan - this plan contains the main activities the council plans to carry out and what they hope to achieve by these activities. This plan is part of Council's Integrated Planning and Reporting framework.
Social or community plans - this plan identifies and includes action to address the needs of specific groups in the community.
Plans of management for community land - these plans identify important features of community land, explain how it will be managed, and how it may be used or developed.
