    The Mayor and Councillors would like to extend an invitation to our successful submitters and community members to attend the speed dialogue session. This session will provide an opportunity for our successful submitters to discuss their idea in further detail with Councillors and fellow community members.

    Each successful submitter will have five minutes (for each submission) to "pitch your idea" and answer questions.

    Initial consultation

    Council is again providing an opportunity for community members to pitch an idea to be included in Council's 2019-20 budget.

    Council invites residents, community groups, sporting associations, businesses and organisations to make submissions recommending specific ideas for capital works or community programs/projects to be funded in the 2019-20 Budget.

    How To Pitch Your Idea:

    To submit your idea online, you must provide an email address. If you do not have an email address, ask other members of your group, family or friends to help, or visit one of our libraries and get one of our library staff to help you setup an email account.

    Submissions close at midnight Sunday 28 October.

    If you require the form in a different format or language or have any questions in relation to the form, please contact one of our Community Engagement Team member's whose details are located in the Who's Listening box on the right.
