Open Community Briefings

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 14 April 2021 and will be a presentation of the Potential Property Sales in Baw Baw Shire.

Council will publish information for this Open Community Briefing on the Friday before the Briefing which can be found on the Agendas and Minutes page.

Community members are welcome to make a submission for this briefing. For more information on making a submission to Council, please click here.
