The Community Consultation process is primarily undertaken to ensure that members of the community have an opportunity to voice their opinions for Council to consider during the decision making process. Further information on the principles that Council follows in undertaking community consultations can be found in our Community Engagement Policy.

Council carefully designs each consultation and develops a ‘Statement of Intent’ which includes information on the purpose, timeframes and resource requirements of the consultation process, the level of consultation and expected outcomes. This helps define the extent of the community’s influence at the beginning of the consultation process so that expectations are not unfairly raised.

A range of consultation methods are enlisted to ensure that any and all stakeholder groups are provided with a reasonable opportunity to participate. At a minimum this includes:-

  • a notice in the local press;

  • public exhibitions at the Civic Centre and Lane Cove and Greenwich Libraries;

  • a online exhibition on Council’s website; and

  • an eNewsletter emailed to subscribers of Council’s Consultations database.

Subscribing to Council’s Consultations database will ensure you don’t miss a thing. If you are not already a subscriber and are interested receiving direct notifications of all Council’s community consultations you can sign up here.

To have your say on any of the current community consultations you can make a submission to the General Manager within the identified consultation period by:-

  • Post - Lane Cove Council, PO Box 20 Lane Cove 1595;

  • Fax - 02 9911 3600

  • Email
