    We recently consultated with the community on how public transport is meeting their needs. An essential part of the City’s Strategic Community Plan, which seeks to integrate a range of transport alternatives to meet the needs of our growing population, is to provide the community with smart, connective and accessible transport options.

    In the past we have consulted with the community via online surveys, face to face community consultations and strategic community plan surveys. Some of the things that you have told us include; a push for regular and practical bus services - commuter business hours would be fantastic. Also late night public transport and to encourage more pedestrians, bikes and buses and less vehicles in town centres

    We asked members of our community to help us locate high priority areas in our environment.


    The strategy will help provide guidance and direction for the City and community in the management of environmental weeds. It will aim to ensure that the limited funding, time and resources available for environmental weed control are used in the most strategic, efficient and effective way possible by directing them towards the highest priority weeds and the protection of the highest priority ecological assets.

    It is important to note two key aspects of the scope of the project:

    1. It is focused on environmental weeds and the ecological impact they have and not agricultural or horticultural weeds.

    2. It is focused on City reserves (although many aspects will flow through to private lands or other tenures).

    Last month we invited feedback on City communications and engagement. We were keen to gauge community satisfaction levels, find out what you’re interested in hearing more about and how you would like to participate in future consultation initiatives.

    We received 284 responses to our survey. Overall you told us that we’re providing you with interesting and balanced information in a timely manner. It was a B score card for City communication and engagement – pretty good, but with room for improvement!

    The City recently sought feedback from local residents on the issue of sediments built-up in Toby Inlet. As part of the survey, 5 areas were identified as of concern to the community, with the highest impacts being listed as poor visual amenity, reduced water flow and reduced on-water recreational access. This information, alongside thorough desktop and field assessments will be used by the City to undertake a study of the sediments in Toby Inlet, which will provide more detailed information informing future decisions regarding management and/or removal of sediments from the inlet. This project is funded through the Revitalising Geographe Waterways 2 program.

    Dunsborough Townscape


    Consultation with local businesses and residents regarding the next stage of the Dunsborough Town Centre development (Stage 6) didn’t reveal a clear community preference for any one of the three options presented. Given this fact and the need to ensure future works tie in with ongoing Activity Centre Planning for the Dunsborough CBD, Council has decided to put these works on hold to undertake further consultation.
