Community Conversations

At Waratah-Wynyard Council communication is at the core of everything we do. By having good communication and engagement practices and by encouraging open conversations and interactions on local issues we will improve our service delivery and help inform, empower and connect our community.

In 2019 Council released a Communications and Engagement Strategy which outlines five key Strategic Objectives and Guiding Principles for the 2019-2021 period. These Guiding principles are:

  • We will keep stakeholders informed with timely communication about Council projects, events and other newsworthy items.
  • We will listen to our community by facilitating open, respectful two-way communication in order to build trust, encourage feedback and increase stakeholder understanding and support.
  • With consideration for the diversity of our community, we commit to engaging with our stakeholders in innovative and meaningful ways that broaden our communication reach and increase the level of stakeholder engagement.
  • We will collaborate with our stakeholders on major projects from conception to completion, incorporating feedback, advice and recommendations throughout the project lifecycle.
  • We will deliver a consistent brand message and implement strategies to build awareness and advocacy amongst our stakeholders.

 We’re Listening!

Council has implemented an annual schedule of Community Conversations – where Councillors and key staff meet informally within local communities to provide information on some of the key Council activities and projects of relevance to that town and listen to matters of local importance to community members.

Dates for the 2019 Community Conversations were:

  • Wynyard – July 29
  • Waratah – August 26
  • Boat harbour – September 30
  • Sisters Beach – October 28
  • Yolla – November 25
  • Somerset - December 2

 

Dates for 2020 coming soon.

 

Further information such as venues and times will be released closer to each date. To register your interest in attending (for catering purposes) please fill in the registration form. Follow us on facebook for updates!
