Engaging with Our Community
Community input continually guides Council decisions.
The community engagement strategy lines the mechanisms that Parkes Shire Council uses to engage our communities in the issues and decisions that affect them.
Based on a set of guiding principles and a diverse range of processes, the outputs and outcomes of the strategy inform the planning, delivery and reporting of all Council's integrated plans and reports.
The strategy is known as the Community Engagement Continuum. As the name implies it is a continuous process, not a collection of isolated activities. It is the way Council does its work and how Council and the community work together.
