Community Engagement

The City of Burnside has long held a strong commitment to open, participatory and transparent community engagement and a desire for the community to be informed of, to be consulted with, and be involved in, Council’s direction and decision making processes.

Community engagement is a planned process and is a key tool in understanding the community’s needs, expectations and opinions, providing information and improving Council’s research and business performance. It is undertaken to inform Council’s decision making. Council will seek to achieve understanding and involvement with those affected by our decision making through participation ranging from informing and consulting to involving the community.

Burnside Council has a Community Engagement (Public Consultation) Policy that aims to achieve a best practice standard on all community engagement issues. The City of Burnside's community engagement approach is defined in the Communications and Community Engagement Strategy(PDF, 2MB) (see link below to read this Strategy).

Our Strategic Direction is to be engaging, open and approachable, to listen to and be representative of our community’s views, to act on their behalf in the best interest of our City.
