WATAG congratulates the elected Councillors.
In the spirit of the new Local Government Act 2020, WATAG seeks to build valuable relationships with Councillors and Officers. The new ACT embodies “Principles of Community Engagement” with which we totally agree.
The process of working collaboratively with and through groups of people affiliated by geographic proximity, special interest, or similar situations to address issues affecting the well-being of those people is a powerful vehicle for bringing about positive change that a community is invested in..
It often involves partnerships and coalitions that help mobilise resources and influence systems, change relationships among partners, and serve as a catalyst for changing policies, programs, and practices.Reproduced from “Principles of Community Engagement“
WATAG, with its ‘special interest‘ in making Active Transport a safe, convenient and accessible option for all community members – including the young, old, disabled and disadvantaged – is ideally placed to help.
We have some special insights and expertise that we know will benefit the community if we work with Councillors and Officers to build ‘partnerships‘ that will ‘serve as a catalyst for changing policies, programs and practices.‘
WELL DONE COUNCILLORS!
