Our commitment to the community

We want to ensure that all of our engagement opportunities help to identify community needs and priorities so that Council’s decisions can align with community expectations.

Community engagement is a crucial input into good decision making. We combine community feedback with other evidence (research/customer data), expert knowledge and our strategic policies and guided legislation to come to an informed decision.

Our Community Engagement Policy details how we will engage with you and how you can have a say on projects that matter to you.

We are striving for a best-practice approach to engagement to help us to create more liveable communities, better public policy and to ensure people are at the core of what we do.

The Loop

The Loop is Wyndham City’s online community engagement platform. It is the community’s online space to stay informed, join discussions and shape projects that matter to you. We ask for feedback on a variety of topics from plans to building community centres and sporting facilities, to improvements to our business districts, parks, roads, festivals and much more. It’s your chance to have your voice heard and make a difference. Watch the video below to find out more. We have the same video translated into other languages here.

How does it work?

Projects that are open for feedback are published on The Loop and able to be translated into ten different languages. You can share your thoughts and ideas by responding to short surveys, or other online tools, or providing feedback face-to-face when opportunities to meet are available. Your feedback is then combined with other important information to help make decisions.

The Loop is an additional online engagement tool which complements traditional face-to-face consultation, such as workshops, pop-ups and forums. It provides an alternative and convenient option for those who may not be able to attend face-to-face activities.

All comments, ideas and suggestions (collected online or face-to-face) are collated and used to inform Council decision making processes.
