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.

Community Engagement Policy

The Council values effective engagement in developing a positive relationship with the 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.


Your Say Hobart

Your Say Hobart is our new online engagement tool to engage with the community and gather feedback to inform the Council's decision-making.

We are refreshing our approach to community engagement and while we will continue to engage using more traditional methods of face-to-face information sessions, workshops and forums; Your Say Hobart offers the community an opportunity to participate online.

You can read about current projects, download relevant documents, complete short surveys and feedback forms and join the discussions to contribute your ideas and provide feedback on a range of Council projects and activities

You can access Your Say Hobart via our homepage or by going direct to the Your Say Hobart website
