Council has many processes and activities that involve the public in decision, education or sharing of information. While it is not possible or effective to consult with the community on every issue, Burdekin Shire Council engages the community to enhance Council’s decisions and to facilitate well-informed community participation in policy, plans, programs and service levels.
For more information about Council’s community consultation and engagement please refer to our Community Engagement Policy on Council's Policies web page.
Burdekin Shire Council is committed to providing meaningful opportunities for the public to participate in the decision making processes on projects which affect the local community and the future development of the region.
Community engagement plays an important role in the planning and delivery of Council services and facilities and for shaping the future of our shire.

Burdekin Shire's draft Anzac Park Precinct Master Plan includes an SS Yongala themed water play space, an outdoor stage, a pump track for skate and cycle enthusiasts, a beach volleyball court, fitness equipment circuit and more.
The draft Master Plan was conceptualised by Queensland recreation, open space and sport planning specialists ROSS Planning following consultation with Council and all users in the 17.5 hectare precinct.
One goal of the draft Master Plan is to offer both formal and informal recreation opportunities for people of all ages and skill levels, which has been achieved through the expansion of existing amenities - such as the indoor basketball court - as well as the introduction of some brand new exciting features which have never been seen in the Burdekin before, such as the proposed water play space and pump track.
Community consultation at this early stage ensures the feedback of the community is taken into account prior to future Master Plans of the Precinct being finalised.
