WELCOME TO THE CONVERSATION

Engage.Wollondilly is Wollondilly Shire Council's new online community engagement portal.

 


WHO CAN JOIN IN THE CONVERSATION?

Everybody can join in! Whether you're a Wollondilly resident, a worker or you're simply interested in local issues and upcoming developments, we're ready to hear from you.

 

WHY JOIN ENGAGE.WOLLONDILLY?

In the past, the only way to engage with Council was to send letters or attend community meetings in person. However, Engage.Wollondilly is a direct line to Council to make sure that we hear you on the community issues and developments that matter to you.

 

WHAT WILL MY INPUT BE USED FOR?

Your contributions to Engage.Wollondilly will be considered by Council during our planning and decision making processes. Your input is even more important to us when Council is faced with a number of viable options or alternatives.

 

HOW DO I NAVIGATE ENGAGE.WOLLONDILLY?
