What is a submission?
You can make a submission to give your feedback on consultations we carry out regularly.
A submission is a way you can have a say on Council’s current consultations. You can make an individual submission, a submission on behalf of a group or a joint submission.
Guidelines to making a submission
If you're new to the concept of making a submission you can find out more by reading our guide to making a submission (PDF 109 kb) and guidelines to making a public comment.
View our consultations and engagements page to see what is currently open for feedback. This 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, we can put you on a mailing list to get updates. Please get in touch with us and we'll help you get through to the right person.
Making a submission
You can make a submission online, by email or post.
If the consultation is currently open, you can make a submission online.
The first time you make an online submission, you may need to register and set up a login which can be used again in the future. Make sure you select the correct consultation if several are displayed.
