The City is developing a new Engagement Policy 2021 which will outline why we engage, when we will engage, how we will engage, and who we will engage with.

The Policy will demonstrate the City's commitment to the principles and processes of best practice community engagement and will set out the methods of engagements to be considered across all engagement types - in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020.

Prior to developing the draft Engagement Policy, the City is seeking your feedback about its current engagement approach in planning, policies, projects and other initiatives that affect our community. You can provide feedback by any or all of the following methods:

  • complete the online engagement survey
  • provide a general online or written submission
  • complete a hard copy survey

Your feedback will provide us with a valuable insight into current views on our engagement approach, which will be collated and used to inform the development of the draft Engagement Policy and guide the City's future engagement approach.

The draft Engagement Policy will be developed in October - November 2020 and shared for further comment through a second stage of community consultation in November - December 2020.

Online survey

We'd love to hear feedback about your experience taking part in the City's engagement activities.

This survey has been developed to seek your feedback. It will help us understand your expectations and learn about your experiences with our approach to engaging on planning, policy development, projects and other engagement initiatives that affect our communities.

Information gathered from this survey will be reviewed and used in the development of the draft Engagement Policy and the City's engagement approach more broadly.

The City will deliver a number of hard copy surveys to randomised addresses across the municipality. If you receive a hard copy survey, we would greatly appreciate any response.

Sending out hard copy surveys across the municipality helps us to broaden our engagement reach and increase participation.

Also, if you do not receive a hard copy survey but would prefer to submit a hard copy survey, please contact us via this email: engagement@geelongcity.vic.gov.au and we will provide you with a hard copy survey.
