Community Engagement - Have Your Say

Community engagement, have your say on upcoming projects


You told us that you want to see how community views and ideas influence Council decisions. Guided by our Community Engagement Strategy, we’ll continue to listen, have conversations and report back to you.

Whether you live, work, study or play in our city, we want to have genuine discussions about what you think creates a stronger, vibrant and liveable place for everyone. By participating in Council’s decision making processes and sharing your ideas, we can reflect them in our plans and projects.

Council is committed to making sure everyone can access the information they need in a format that is right for them. If you would like information supplied in another language or format please call 02 9806 5050 or contact the Community Engagement team on

Have your say on crime and safety in Parramatta

Council is seeking your input to build a safer Parramatta for all and invites feedback on the Draft Crime Prevention Plan 2019-2023.

This plan outlines ways that Council and its partners can continue to contribute to a liveable and safe Parramatta, and proposes to deliver preventative action on crime and safety under four areas:

  • Reducing crime and antisocial behaviour
  • Addressing the needs of identified vulnerable groups
  • Improving the look and feel of public spaces in the CBD and neighbourhoods
  • Increasing a sense of attachment and community involvement in our neighbourhoods.

Feedback on this plan will help Council prioritise action on crime and safety measures for the next five years. We welcome and encourage your feedback on this plan.


To provide feedback on the Draft Crime Prevention Plan, visit Council’s engagement portal where you can read the full draft plan or a summary of the draft plan.

Summaries are available in Arabic, English, Hindi, Korean, and Simplified Chinese.

Have your say on naming roads, streets and open spaces in the new Carter Street Precinct, Lidcombe

The Carter Street Precinct is a 52-hectare site located south-west of Sydney Olympic Park, and north of the M4 Motorway, in Lidcombe.

Over the next 20 years, this area will be transformed into a vibrant new community including 5,500 new homes, retail and business facilities, a primary school, a 1.8-hectare park and new links to Sydney Olympic Park. 

Council has worked with the NSW Geographical Names Board to develop a list of names that meet specific criteria. The proposed names reflect the area’s rich heritage and the wildlife important to the local ecosystem.

How to have your say
