Other opportunities to engage with the council are put openly to the whole community when the Council seeks ‘expressions of interest’ on a proposal. On this page, you can find details of a number of matters which are currently up for public comment or seeking expressions of interest:

Have your say

Forbes Shire Council seeks community input and feedback on a range of issues. Stakeholder engagement is an important element of the Council decision-making process. Comments and submissions must be made in writing so they can be seriously considered and the information collated into a report to be considered by a council meeting. Comments can only be considered as formal submissions if the author’s details are included.

People who wish to have their say should keep the mind that written submissions from the community may be made public as part of a report to a Council meeting. Because a number of matters are always up for public comment, submissions must make it clear which topic is being addressed. You can find more information here about making a submission to Forbes Shire Council.

Submissions can be sent by mail to:

General Manager
Forbes Shire Council
PO Box 333
Forbes NSW  2871

Submissions can also be made by email to: forbes@forbes.nsw.gov.au
