About Your Say Clarence

Have your say about what matters to you.

We want you to be part of the conversation to make Clarence a better place to live, visit and enjoy. 

Your Say Clarence is a community engagement platform that has been developed to make it easy for you to share your ideas and opinions in a range of ways on the decisions, projects and issues that you care about most.

Through this site you can:

  • Share your views, comments and ideas in a transparent format;
  • Ask questions and have them answered;
  • View information on various council projects;
  • Have discussions with other people in the community; and
  • Stay informed on consultations that you are interested in.

How does it work?

Your Say Clarence is an online engagement tool which complements other forms of community consultation such as meetings, workshops, displays and forums. It provides engagement opportunities for those who may not be able to attend face to face activities and lets you have your say from your phone at a time convenient to you.

All comments, ideas and suggestions (collected online, face-to-face, or on paper) are collated and used to inform our decision making processes. Project updates will be made available via the Your Say Clarence website in a timely manner.

Why should I sign up?

When you sign up to Your Say Clarence you can choose to receive regular updates on current and future projects of interest to you.

Registration for Your Say Clarence is quick and simple and includes a few important questions that help us to understand a little more about you and your interests, and most importantly, save us from asking you these questions in every consultation. It is really important that our contributors register so that we can ensure that we have a good demographic representation across the city on all projects and activities that we consult on.

Our Community Participation Policy

We consult with the community on a number of major projects, strategies, plans and policies in accordance with our Community Participation Policy. The purpose of the policy is to involve the community in decision making and improve understanding between council and the Clarence community. 

We are currently undertaking a review of the policy.
