City of Melbourne: Our Community Engaged
This unique research project has sought to inform council's understanding of what kinds of decisions the communities of Melbourne expect to be involved in and how different constituencies and interests prefer to be involved.
Over a period of six months, using a range of different techniques, collaborations worked to gather data that reflects the complexity of the different interests in decision-making at the City of Melbourne. As a capital city Melbourne engages with diverse and often competing interests to manage local issues and significant issues of urban change.
Analysis of the outcomes of this research is supporting council's process to improve the way it engages with diverse community interests to facilitate informed and effective engagement.
