What is a submission?
A submission is your way to give feedback on a current piece of Council’s work.
Feedback on current consultations will be included in the analysis and will inform the decision of the consultation.
View our consultations and engagements page to see what is currently open for feedback. This page has the details for each consultation and the relevant forms to send or complete online.
If you're interested in giving feedback on a project or change but there isn't any public consultation going on right now, please get in touch with us and we'll help you get through to the right person.
Our legislative requirements

In addition, by law, Council must follow the special consultative procedure before it:
- Adopts or amends a long-term plan (LTP)
- Adopts, amends or revokes a bylaw under the Local Government Act 2002 if:
- The bylaw concerns a matter identified in a Significance and Engagement Policy as being of significant interest to the public; or
- The local authority considers there is, or is likely to be, a significant impact on the public due to the proposed bylaw (or proposed changes to a bylaw)
