About Open Community Briefings

Baw Baw Shire Council is increasing its transparency and community engagement by holding Open Community Briefings. 

Baw Baw Shire will endeavour to hold monthly Open Community Briefings, where Officers, members of the public or Community Groups will present on items of interest to the community. Where possible, Open Community Briefings will be publicly live streamed, with questions accepted in advance of the meeting. The appropriate information, generally in the form of an officer report, will be made publicly available on Councils website no less than two days prior to the Briefing.

Traditionally, briefings are held regularly to ensure that Councillors are well informed and in the best possible position to debate matters effectively at Council Meetings. 

Next Open Community Briefing

The next Open Community Briefing will be held on Wednesday 9 September 2020 from 3:00pm to 3:30pm to brief Council and interested community members on the progress of the Placemaking Towns 2020/21 program.

Community members are welcome to make a submission for this briefing. Submissions must be submitted by 5.00pm on Tuesday 8 September 2020 via the online submission form or by phoning Council on 5624 4211. Submissions will be limited to 400 words.
