Have your say: better engagement = better outcomes
Published 22 February 2021
Moreton Bay Regional Council has acted on community calls for a greater say in the decision making of projects, launching a new engagement portal.
Mayor Peter Flannery said using the new “Your Say Moreton Bay” website is as easy as entering your postcode, and the search engine will pull up projects open for consultation near you.
“We hope this new innovative, interactive, and intuitive platform attracts greater public participation in decisions that impact the community,” Mayor Flannery said.
“In the past, people had to go online to see what consultation was open; now the consultation comes to you, tailored to the topics and areas you’re interested in.
“The new system takes all the hassle out of keeping up-to-date with current projects and consultations.
“I want to assure residents that this technology won’t replace any face-to-face information sessions, in fact we’ve recruited a brand-new community engagement team to ensure Council is out and active in your community to hear your feedback on the work we’re doing.
“So sign up today to help shape our future community precincts, local parks and recreation facilities, main road upgrades, conservation projects and future planning developments.
“This new way of working and gathering information will enrich our decision-making processes through survey data, polls, forum discussions and opportunities to share stories, pictures and ideas.
“Your new Council wants to ensure that, even when making the tough decisions, we are at all times guided by the values and expectations of our community.”
Your Say Moreton Bay will replace Council’s consultation page to become the single online destination for community consultations.
