Our approach to community engagement

What is community engagement?
Community engagement means involving people in the decisions that affect their lives. It enables good governance and informed decision making.

Stages to have your say
  • Open: means the consultation is accepting contributions;
  • Under Review: is when the project is closed and being evaluated; and
  • Final Report: the final outcomes get presented.

Our guiding principles

Lake Macquarie City Council is a member of the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) Australasia. We are committed to the professional core values and ethics when conducting community engagement.
