The Council, under the Local Government Act 1993, is required to have a community engagement strategy, based upon social justice principles, for engaging the community when developing the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) and for other planning activities. The purpose of this strategy is to outline the processes Council will use to engage the community in a range of planning contexts. It describes how the Council's Community Engagement Policy will be implemented and it informs how individual engagement action plans will be developed and carried out.
Council's Resourcing Strategy identifies how the goals and aspirations identified in the Community Strategic Plan, YOUR future 2030, and actioned through the Delivery Program, will be prioritised and achieved.

The Resourcing Strategy is also intended to make clear what elements of the Community Strategic Plan the council will take responsibility for. Other levels of government, business, non-government organisations, community groups and individuals will also have a role in achieving the outcomes of the Community Strategic Plan.
