How we engage with the community

We developed our community engagement strategy to strengthen our relationship with you and learn more about your needs and views. This will help us make informed and transparent decisions.

Our Community Engagement Strategy

The Glen Eira Community Engagement Strategy 2022–2026 outlines our approach for connecting with the community, and what we’ve learned about engaging residents to plan for the future.

View our past engagements.

The community engagement model has been adapted from the IAP2 model of engagement and shows four interconnected elements that outline our approach.


  • Understand context, define scope and set clear purpose
  • Identify stakeholders and define level of influence


  • Select methods and sequence
  • Prepare Engagement Plan


  • Implement the Plan
  • Inform decision-making and report back


  • Evaluate community engagement process
  • Build knowledge and learn

We also have a Community Engagement Policy (PDF, 140KB) which sits alongside the strategy. It outlines our vision and commitment and the aims of engagement.
