Consultations and Community Engagement
The City of Greater Dandenong values the ideas and opinions of its residents, rate payers and business and wants them to be a part of planning and decision make processes. We recognise that decision making and services are enhanced when the community has an opportunity to provide input and express its expectations, aspirations and ideas.
Council regularly seeks community views on a range projects and plans via online consultations, surveys, workshops, focus groups and advisory committees.

Community Engagement Policy and Framework
To ensure that our engagement is best practice a Community Engagement Policy and Framework was developed in 2013. The policy outlines Council's commitment to thorough, consistent and genuine community engagement that will inform responsible decision making for the benefit of the community, while the framework provides for more comprehensive and broader community engagement with a wider range of mechanisms.
