Community Voices Return

After a long debate and some delay, the Willoughby City Council Voluntary Advisory Committees are up and about to start running again.

The Advisory Committees are made up of individuals who have nominated to provide their expertise, understanding and local community links to advance the key aspirations of the community as expressed in Council’s strategic policies and by monitoring their implementation.  They will provide advice which Council may take up in its decision-making.

Following a public nomination process, the new members for each committee were announced at Council’s March meeting.

WEPA is pleased to see that a number of its members have volunteered to work for their communities in this way.

Not all of the positions were filled in this round.  At its March meeting Council resolved to hold a further Expression of Interest process to recruit members for the following Advisory Committees:

  • Access and Inclusion;
  • Bicentennial Reserve and Flat Rock Gully; and
  • Built and Cultural Heritage Advisory

as it was felt that additional members were needed to represent all elements of the committees’ work.

If you feel you can provide some time to assist with the valuable work of the three committees flagged above, please see the further details at Have Your Say.
