Neighbourhood Empowerment Policy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Neighbourhood Empowerment is about giving the community opportunities, or power, to have a say about what would make their neighbourhoods better. Empowering community means getting them to speak up on ways of improving their lives in their neighbourhoods. Council has a role to play in how we provide the community with opportunities, skills and resources to do so.

This is important to Moonee Valley City Council because community should be at the core of the decisions that impact their lives and their community. This enables council to provide better services and places to meet their needs. Deliberative engagement with community is a great way for the process to occur.

We are committed to inclusive community engagement and empowerment.

Our Neighbourhood Empowerment Policy will set out our commitment to inclusive and accessible community engagement. As well as the online hub, Your Say Moonee Valley, we provide a range of in person opportunities including community workshops, drop in information sessions and community events. When you participate in our consultation projects, you are helping us understand community priorities, issues and ideas to make our city an even better place.

Please provide your ideas below or come along to the Community Workshop on 16 October.

Community workshop, 6-8pm, Wednesday 16 October at Civic Centre, 9 Kellaway Avenue, Moonee Ponds
