Have Your Say on Issues That Are Important to You

Last week Forbes Shire Council unveiled a new community consultation website to allow community members to have their say on important issues. Your Say Forbes will allow anyone with a connection to the internet to make their voice heard and have an impact on Council decisions.

The new site will allow Council to gather community opinions using a variety of purpose-built tools that go beyond the usual survey, including interactive mapping, quick polls and more. “We are very excited to be offering this new method for people to provide feedback,” says Mayor Phyllis Miller OAM. “Of course the site will be used in conjunction with more traditional engagement methods, like town hall meetings and face-to-face consultations, but the new website makes it easier than ever for community members to have their say.” Want to get involved? Head over to www.yoursay.forbes.nsw.gov.au to have your say. To participate in discussions you’ll need to register, but it’s a quick and easy process, and will help Council keep you in the loop about conversations that might interest you in the future. There are three consultations running at the moment, including an Events Review (complete the survey and you will go in the draw to win an End of Isolation Prize Pack valued at over $500), a Recreation and Open Space Survey and the opportunity to make a submission on the Forbes Local Strategic Planning Statement – a vision for the future of Forbes.
