April 2024 Local Government Strategy Workshop

You are invited to bring your ideas, experiences and vision to contribute to our strategy for a liveable, carbon neutral city, and a Green council.

Session 1 - Policy development

We will hear from our Councillors on achievements and campaigns on the current council, and the issues and challenges for the city and council in the next four years. Workshops will review our local policies and strategies, identify priority issues for the next council, and the work needed to fill policy gaps. Workshops will cover:

  • Transition to carbon neutral council by 2030 and city by 2040
  • Development controls and urban design to meet housing needs¬†
  • Waste management and the circular economy
  • Infrastructure - transport, sports & leisure facilities, and other human services
  • Local manufacturing and small business

Session 2 - Greens Campaign Strategy

We will review the results of past elections, the current politics of Council, and projections for the coming election with an eye to developing a Lord Mayor and Councillor campaign. What are the best objectives, priorities, methods and strategies to use? We need to consider which issues, demographics and Wards to focus our efforts on. 

Wrap-up session will allocate responsibilities and pathways to make sure all the campaign tasks identified in the workshops will be acted on.

We will be providing a FREE LUNCH after 1.00pm (please RSVP) to catch up with our new candidates, to share ideas with other members, and follow up on the tasks from the final session. All meals are vegetarian, please contact the secretary for any other dietary requirement you need accommodated.
