Community Ward Forums

Community Ward Forums provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions relating to their Ward and hear responses in a public setting. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet Elected Members and hear from other members of your Ward and their questions.

Ward Forums are held annually (except in the year of a Council Election), due to Covid restrictions the 2020 Community Ward Forums have been postponed to early 2021.

How to be Involved

If you have a question you would like answered, we encourage you to register your question prior to the event so that a detailed response can be provided to you on the night.

Questions can be emailed to Please ensure you send us your question one week before the meeting to allow time for an answer to be collated. In the interest of fairness we ask that residents limit their questions to two (2) so that a broader range of community questions can be discussed in the meeting.

When you email your question/s please ensure you provide your name, suburb and if you will attend, so that we can ensure the question is allocated to the correct Ward Forum.

For more information please call 8372 8811.
