Draft Community Engagement Strategy

At the Ordinary Meeting of Council held on 1 November 2022, Council resolved to publicly exhibit the draft Community Engagement Strategy. The draft Council Strategy sets out Council’s approach to engagement to meet the diverse and specific needs of the Strathfield community to include the community in decision making processes.

The draft strategy sets out Council’s approach and principles of community engagement, considerations in planning engagements, preparing plans, and determining purpose and scope, assessing levels of impact and levels of engagement (reference to IAP2 spectrum) and tools and methods of engagement.  The draft strategy also provides guidance on identifying communities and stakeholders, engagement timeframes, public exhibitions and outcomes and reporting.
