About the Imagine Moreland Community Panel
We are delighted to be collaborating with the inaugural Imagine Moreland Community Panel in 2021. This panel is a group of 44 local community members that have been recruited through a random selection process to match the demographic make-up of Moreland. The purpose of the panel is to participate in a deliberative engagement process in accordance with requirements of the Local Government Act 2020.
What will the panel do?
The panel will participate in two stages of community engagement for the Imagine Moreland program. The outputs of each stage of engagement will inform the development of core Council strategies.
The first stage: The panel will develop a new Community Vision document for Moreland over 3 full days. A Community Vision is an important document that describes our community’s hopes, ideas and aspirations for the future of Moreland. See the videos below to see the panel process of writing the Moreland Community Vision between April and May.
The second stage: The panel will have six online conversations to discuss six topics that are relevant to core Council strategies.
Upcoming online conversations with the Community Panel
In May and June, the panel will participate in six online conversations to provide feedback on topics that will inform the development of core Council strategies including the Council Plan (which includes the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan), the 10 year Asset Plan and the 10-year Financial Plan. The topics the group will deliberate over during the six online conversations are:
- Health and Equity
- Economy and the arts
- Democracy and governance
- Getting around
- Climate and nature
To keep you informed, each week we will share updates of the panel process with our wider community. This will include sharing presentations from expert speakers.
Later in the year we will make all draft documents available to the community for viewing and feedback. We will also ask you what you thought of our overall engagement process for Imagine Moreland and if you think we should host more deliberative engagement processes in the future.
