Council values contributions from the community and we regularly invite feedback on policies, strategies and projects.
The Kingborough Community Consultative Forum meets every three months, where representatives from community organisations across Kingborough meet with Council Officers to discuss ideas and provide feedback on a range of projects.
We value the opportunity to gather information about what you want and to make collaborative, consultative decisions. Council now has an online community engagement platform, where all of Council’s online forums, polls and surveys will be published. Visit the Our Say page via the link below.
Green Waste Bin Survey
Council has adopted a Waste Management Strategy and will now work towards implementing actions to achieve five goals which were developed in consultation with the community.
The goals of the strategy are: increased waste avoidance and reduction; increased recycling rates; best practice waste and resource recovery; efficient and sustainable governance; and effective community engagement. Kingborough Waste Services (KWS) will be responsible for managing waste in Kingborough, and are now looking at the feasibility of a green waste kerbside collection service as identified in the Strategy. We need feedback from residents in Kingborough before a recommendation can be prepared and presented to the Kingborough Council. The below link explains the parameters that have been suggested for a green waste bin kerbside collection service, and includes a link to a simple survey for residents to have their say.
Planning Kingborough’s Future
We want to know why you enjoy living in Kingborough and what is important to you.
This will enable us to make sure community needs are helping to shape our decisions in the management of our infrastructure and services. This is an initial call for comment, we will be advertising other avenues for the community to have their say in the future.
Kingston Park – Community Hub
The Community Hub is under construction and is expected to open in early 2019.
It will provide a venue for events, displays, performances, meetings and other family activities that is much needed in central Kingston. It could be an art gallery one day and a theatre space or conference facility the next!
Council is seeking your ideas on how you could use the space or what you would like to see happening there.
Kingston Park – Playing in the Park
We would like to know what you want from the amazing public open spaces in Kingston Park. What sort of playground facilities would you think will benefit the community? What about pathways and other amenities in the space?
What is going to make you want to use the Park again and again? Tell us on the Our Say forum.
