Public Consultation Process

Under the Local Government Act, Council is required to put specific items on public consultation. This aims to achieve a positive relationship with the local community and a transparent and responsive decision making process which encourages community participation.

Documentation relating to items on public consultation appear in the Border Chronicle or can be viewed at the Bordertown or Keith Council Office. Written submissions are invited from persons within 21 days of the notice or such longer period as determined by the Council or prescribed by legislation.
