Community Voice Panels

Community Voice Panels The silent majority will now have a chance to be heard in Canterbury-Bankstown, with Council to trial Community Voice Panels. No  

The silent majority will now have a chance to be heard in Canterbury-Bankstown, with Council to trial Community Voice Panels.

Mayor, Khal Asfour, said the introduction of the Panels will see residents have a greater voice across the City.

"There is a greater need for the community to be heard, given Canterbury-Bankstown is now the largest Council area in NSW," Mayor Asfour said.

"We’re currently faced with an unprecedented level of change across the City, as a result of major projects and strategies being driven by the NSW Government.

"Take the Sydney Metro for example. The community was given a very technical 5,000-page document to read and respond to with very little time.

"The feedback was clear from the residents that they are not happy with the level of engagement undertaken by the Government."

Mayor Asfour was hopeful the Community Voice Panels would assist in briefing the Councillors better about community concerns and priorities.

"These Panels will be given the opportunity to be briefed in detail on the background of the projects," Mayor Asfour said.

"As information or decisions are required to be made, the Community Voice Panel members will be consulted and the outcomes of any discussions fed back to Councillors, to assist in their decision-making.

"The purpose is to provide Council with another level of community insight that may otherwise not be received through listening to the vocal interest groups."

Mayor Asfour reiterated the Community Voice Panels would complement Council’s existing forms of community consultation strategies, including the Have Your Say portal, workshops and social media platforms.

"We will continue to work with key interest groups and stakeholders, as well as seeking general community feedback," Mayor Asfour said.

Council will trial two Panels for the Sydenham to Bankstown Metro and Sydenham to Bankstown Urban Renewal Strategy.
