Communication & Engagement Commitment



Mount Barker District Council is committed to obtain and consider community contributions and relevant information to ensure that any decision made is in the best interests of the community. We want to ensure that outcomes are achieved through effective communication and engagement. However, any final decision rests with Council.

When engaging the community in a decision-making process of which legislated public consultation is a part, Council will:


  • Seek out and encourage contributions from people who may be affected by or interested in a decision;
  • Provide relevant, timely and balanced information so people can contribute in a meaningful way;
  • Provide a variety of appropriate and accessible ways for people to have their say and to speak honestly;
  • Actively listen so that people’s ideas and input assist in making the final decision;
  • Consider the needs and interests of all people in the decision-making process;
  • Collaborate with peak bodies and other levels of Government to achieve common goals for Council.
