Current Public Consultation:
Port Augusta City Council identified strategy 3.6.1 in its Community Vision and Strategic Plan 2013/2017 requiring the development of a new Communications and Engagement Strategy that includes the appropriate use of social media and emerging technologies to enhance community participation.
A draft Port Augusta City Council Community Engagement Strategy is now available for consideration by the public. A review has also been completed of Council’s Public Consultation and Engagement Policy 1.1.08 as both of these documents should be read in conjunction with each other.

Council is also committed to genuine engagement based on the core values of public participation detailed by the International Association for Public Participation (iap2) and the South Australian Government’s Better Together: Principles of Engagement.
The above documents are available below. Feedback can be submitted in writing to Mrs Lee Heron, Director – City & Cultural Services, Port Augusta City Council, PO Box 1704, Port Augusta SA 5700 or alternatively forwarded via email to email@example.com
