Have Your Say

Community Chats

Involve

You Matter. Your Perspective Matters.

Community conversations is a way for you to engage with us in a new and welcoming way. We want you to feel uninhibited and share any ideas or concerns you may have for your community. We want to hear what local communities issues are important to you, what you love and what you don’t love, and figure out a way forward together.

What to expect

Using a world café style of engagement, we will chat about what people care about in their specific area and how they see their local community issues. We will explore community issues and how we can work together to achieve outcomes and solutions.

What happens after

We will collate what we hear from the community and provide responses back to the community following this session. We are aware that there may be some community issues that are beyond our control. We will endeavour to provide a response to all the issues and questions.
