Community consultation: how to have your say

Our consultations website helps you take part in decisions made by Council. Here’s how it works.

Having you involved in Council decision-making, through our public consultations process, is something we actively encourage for all members of the community. Listening to your input helps us improve our services and projects to better meet your expectations.

Our consultations website, Engage Boroondara, makes it easy to get involved in consultations and stay connected with Council’s decision making. In the past 12 months, we’ve welcomed your input on more than 50 consultations, receiving thousands of submissions across topics such as redevelopment plans for sportsgrounds and playgrounds to long-term strategies like our Climate Action Plan.

Consultations on Engage Boroondara are grouped to make the progress of each consultation more visible and transparent.

  • Open: These consultations are currently open and inviting you to get involved. You can consider information about each issue, see the dates of face-to-face and online consultation events, and submit your comments and ideas.
  • Active: These are consultations where submissions have closed and a Council decision is pending.
  • Closed: These are records of past consultations where a Council decision has been made after listening to a range of views and considering the needs of the community.

You can view all consultations at Engage Boroondara. To stay informed of consultations that matter most to you, register for regular updates by selecting the ‘Join’ button.
