Where the community voice counts!

About the Forum

Run independently by community volunteers, the Forum provides a platform for people to effectively get their message across to Council representatives.

The forum and the forum website are developed by the community so everyone can help shape it’s future, whether through discussion with local council members, raising awareness of issues effecting people in the area or as an information exchange for local services, events or groups. The Forum aims to identify the opportunities as well as tackling the issues, bringing people together to be fully informed, discuss and co-ordinate action.
