What happens to my feedback?

All comments, ideas and suggestions are collated and used to inform Council decision making processes for the development of strategies, programs and activities. This is not the only way we want to engage with the community but the online feedback will be used in conjunction with other face-to-face consultation activities such as workshops, meetings, open days or surveys.

Why is Council engaging online?

As part of a review of its communication and community engagement Bathurst Regional Council is looking at new and more effective ways of including the community in its decision making and sharing ideas and information. Some key advantages of the Your Say Bathurst site is:

• It is a quick, safe and convenient way to have your say on a range of issues and topics.

• It is a great way to keep up to date and contribute your views on issues affecting your community through signing up to online news.

• You can see what other community members think about an issue or topic and share ideas and generate discussion.

• You don't have to attend community meetings at a set place and time, you can contribute at a time and place that suits you.

•It allows for a range of different people, with different views to discuss matters that impact on their community.

Your Say Bathurst will be used to compliment but not replace traditional face to face consultation activities including workshops, displays, forums and communication from Council.
