Good to know that Council is holding the below planning forum. It presents an opportunity for
- residents to learn, and raise concerns on, State and Council laws, policies, process and programs that shape changes to our local areas and
- Council to clarify it’s role in developing and implementing those laws, policies, processors and programs.
To register for the forum – Council’s Have Your Say Page
GERA encourages all residents (including the sceptical who expect more “blame games” and question the timing of the forum and the October’s Council Elections) to attend the forum to gain an understanding of both planning and Council’s key role of ensuring residents views are incorporated in achieving best possible planning outcomes.
Hopefully, more forums will be scheduled prior to October’s Council Elections* and the format of all forums will include not only written questions, submitted during registration, but also provide a Q&A session to address issues arising during the forum.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and safety concerns, the 2020 Council Elections scheduled for 24th October,2020 may be postponed to sometime in 2021. See – Age article 13/08/2020.
