Consultation has concluded we are finalising the feedback for inclusion into the final Community Plan

Over the past nine months Council we spoke to over 1000 people about what our community thought would make Bayside a better place.

The purpose is to give us valuable insights into what we should change in the future but also to learn more about existing and conflicting views within our community and individual residents.

This played out in people saying that they both wanted to be able to drive their cars easily and conveniently around Bayside while also saying that we should work to protect the environment through better air, water and land quality.

We are using this information to prepare a new Community Plan. To help kick things off we have prepared an interim Community Plan Summary and we want to hear your feedback.

Whats a Better Bayside?

What's a better Bayside?

Using community feedback we've developed a suite of community indicators to measure a better Bayside.

You can select from the list of indicators proposed or develop your own measurement of better.

Indicators will be used by Council to measure and track progress and changes in Bayside, so that when it comes to reporting back on the Community Plan we can target out feedback. Indicators are developed across seven key themes.
