The City of Port Phillip is an open and engaging Council
Council operates in an open and transparent manner when making decisions.
We engage our community on key issues of significance by actively seeking input through community reference groups, from broad cross-sections of the community and through community engagement practices that include the use of face-to-face and online mediums.
We encourage community participation and offer opportunities to speak at Council meetings. Confidential reports are kept to a minimum, with every effort made to ensure the majority of decisions are considered in open Council meetings, including tenders and legal matters where possible. We have maintained our commitment to involving people in the process and ensuring decisions are made in the best interests of the whole community.
