What's great about online engagement?

    Online engagement is a quick, safe and convenient way to have your say on a range of issues and topics. It is a great way to keep up to date and contribute your views on issues affecting your community. You can see what other community members think about an issue or topic, and then respond with your own views. You don't have to attend community meetings at a set place and time you can contribute at a time and place that suits you. It allows for a range of different people, with different views to discuss matters that impact on their community.

    What happens to my feedback?

    Your feedback is collated along with other comments, ideas and suggestions and is used to inform Council decisions. Online data is used alongside face to face consultation activities such as workshops, focus groups and listening posts.

    How is the site moderated?

    All moderation is carried out by Bang the Table and is independent to the Moonee Valley City Council. The moderators do not edit or alter any comments and will only remove comments deemed to be significantly off topic, offensive or malicious, in which case they are removed from the site immediately and the contributor advised and the reasons explained. For further information we suggest you refer to the guidelines at the 'Moderation' tab in the menu bar at the bottom of the page.

    Why register?

    We don't require registration to contribute to every project. However, registering to Your Say Moonee Valley is quick and simple with a few important questions that help us understand who is participating. By registering we can also keep you updated on important project news or on upcoming opportunities. There may be projects where we require registration, to ensure discussions and results are not manipulated by someone leaving multiple comments to support their own position. Note your username will appear with your comments in some of the tools that we use, so consider using a name that is not identifiable to you if you want to comment anonymously. All other information provided to us is kept confidential and only used under the EHQ Terms and Conditions.
