How can I have my say?

There are a number of ways to lodge your comments and feedback on Council projects and developments.

Parkes Shire Council understands that building a positive and progressive community that we all enjoy living in can only be successfully achieved through the public participation of residents, businesses and ratepayers.

The community engagement strategy outlines the mechanisms that Parkes Shire Council uses to engage our communities in the issues and decisions that affect them.


Council encourages you to familiarise yourself with our current documents, projects and strategies and make a submission if you have something to contribute.
