Community feedback wanted on Communications and Engagement Strategy for Bass Coast Shire
Bass Coast Shire Council is reviewing its Communications and Engagement Strategy and wants to hear from the community.
The consultation period is open from Monday, 28 February until Saturday, 30 April and will include both online and in-person opportunities to provide feedback. Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Michael Whelan said that over the past two years, Council has had to adapt the way that it communicates and engages with the community.
The community can provide feedback using the online survey, or by attending a pop-up 'listening post' session during March
Cr Whelan said, "The pandemic required us to move a lot of our engagement online, which may have caused challenges for some, while being more accessible for others. We also needed to make some changes to how and when we communicate with our community."
"This review is your opportunity to tell us how you would like to hear from us, how often and the types of information we can provide to keep you updated. We also want to know what we need to do differently, or keep doing when it comes to engagement."
"You can also complete a hard copy survey, which can be picked up from Council's Customer Service Centres in Inverloch, Wonthaggi, Grantville or Cowes. Once completed, just pop it back into a Centre, or post it to PO Box 118, Wonthaggi, 3995. You can also chat to our team in person during March at one of the pop-up sessions being held across the Shire. Every idea counts and we want to hear yours, so we can provide communication and engagement that meets our community's needs," Cr Whelan concluded.
