Over 6,000 people in our community have registered on Council’s online community engagement platform Join the Conversation and we have run over 40 consultations so far this financial year. This is a great result and I’m encouraging all of our residents to jump online and register, so you can have your say on the services, plans and policies we are developing on your behalf.
Council is committed to empowering our residents to participate in meaningful opportunities that contribute to our shared vision and help Council plan to meet needs now and into the future. We had over 100 residents contribute their preferences for play equipment and the location of our renewed Mansion Point Reserve Playground in Grays Point through Join The Conversation. Over 100 people had their say on parking and traffic flow options to complete the Silver Beach shared pathway connection in Kurnell, while over 200 children from the local primary school and more than 200 residents contributed their preferences for equipment within the new Bonna Point Playground and adjoining reserve. Caringbah residents were also able to contribute to the plan and design of the renewed Dianella Street precinct and playground by attending drop-in sessions and completing an online survey.
Right now we’re asking you to tell us if we are on the right track with our Draft Delivery Program for 2017-2021, the Draft Annual Operational Plan, Budget and Capital Works Program for 2020/21, with consultation closing on 27 May 2020. We are also working on a Coastal Management Program for the Bate Bay foreshore that we will soon be requesting your input on. Sign up with your email address to stay informed about the latest consultation opportunities and outcomes. It’s easy and you can provide feedback from the comfort of your own home.
