Would you like to be a part of a community panel?

If you are interested in representing your community over a series of independently facilitated workshops, collaborating to establish the panel's four-year priorities to share with council, click through to see more!


At the City of Greater Geelong, we're committed to making the greatest impact for our residents. This means ensuring we're using our resources in the best ways possible to deliver for our customers and community.

The City is developing its new Council Plan (which includes our Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan) to guide us through the next four years, 2025 to 2029. Aligned with the community's 30-year vision, Greater Geelong: A Clever and Creative Future, the Council Plan will assist us to make decisions that have been informed by your views and maximise the way we meet community need. We will do this with a focus on financially sustainable and ensuring we deliver critical services.

Engagement with the community is an essential part of creating the plan for the community. Your feedback will directly help Councillors and the organisation shape the Plan to ensure it captures community wishes and needs.

See below all the ways you can choose to participate or share your views.
