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.
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.
