HOW WE EXECUTED
The advertising and editorial campaigns centered on the theme of “It’s time for a tune-up!” to both increase awareness of the CSP its role in our community and to encourage residents to have their say.
It also reiterated the importance of community input into Council strategic planning. One example of a print advertisement has been included below:
The plan was approved by Council, on 27 June 2017, and the suite of six documents that support it. We received high praise from councillors for this community engagement and for the calibre of documents we produced, which now rival some of the best in local government.
