Council is developing a Community Development Strategy to guide future community development activities in the region. Join the conversation.
The five year Community Development Strategy will be developed from research and the engagement of stakeholders and the community. It will consider community needs now and into the future. The Strategy will guide the operations of Council in relation to aspects of community development such as social priorities, programs, facilities, networks and partnerships. Gladstone Regional Council is seeking input from the people of the Gladstone Region, organisations and associations to help guide the development of the Community Development Strategy.
Over the months of February and March 2020 Council will be undertaking a comprehensive community engagement program to understand what are the community development priorities and the vision for community development in the region. The engagement launches Monday, 10 February and closes Friday, 3 April. The community is invited to participate in a range of engagement and consultation activities and opportunities including:
- Community Reference Group
- Information and market stalls
- Online surveys via Council’s online engagement platform, Conversations
- Visit the Gladstone Regional Council’s Conversations website to learn more about the project and complete the online survey.
- Postcard survey
- Information displays
- Social Media
