Community Boards, Associations & Advisory Groups

Community Boards represent, and act as an advocate for, the interests of their community. They are separately elected advisory bodies and are not Council Committees.

Community Associations operate separately from Council. Community Associations support and advocate for residents in their local communities and make submissions to Council. Ward Councillors maintain close relationships with their local community associations.

Advisory Groups are established and coordinated by Council for specific user groups. The advisory groups help to guide Council decisions, normally on the use and function of a Council asset.
