Community Engagement

The Hobart City Council recognises the right of the community members to be informed and have input into decisions which affect their lives.

Hobart City Council values effective engagement in developing a positive relationship with its community and recognises that public participation contributes to better decision-making.

Council seeks to take account of the views, needs, issues and aspirations expressed by the community and to balance these with other influences such as budgetary constraints to make informed decisions.

In applying its Community Engagement Policy, the Council will demonstrate its vision, mission and values.
