Join the Conversation

Gwydir Shire Council uses community engagement processes when making decisions with or on behalf of community members of the Gwydir Shire Local Government Area (LGA).

Council has legal responsibilities to deliver engagement and participation processes based on the social justice principles of equity, access, participation and rights. Being guided by these principles allows diverse voices to be embraced by Council when making decisions, or taking actions on behalf of the Gwydir Shire LGA.

We know that your input is an essential ingredient in successful decision making and encourage everyone in the community to join the conversation by taking part in community surveys, consultation sessions, and providing suggestions and feedback, so every voice in heard.

The information gathered through this process is very important and forms the basis of our Community Strategic Plan which sets the direction for Council’s planning and decision making over a 10-year period. You can view Council's current plan here Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027
