In order to promote and continue to improve the good governance within Glamorgan Spring Bay Council, the Communication and Engagement Framework (‘The Framework’) has been developed.

The Framework incorporates proven best practise Frameworks in Australia. The Framework is based on International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) spectrum, which is used globally as a guide for community engagement. The Framework aligns with Council’s strategic plan 2020 – 2029 and reflects the purpose, vison, values, and objectives of that plan.

The Framework outlines how Council will communicate and engage with the community, as well as key initiatives and actions that we will take to improve communication and
engagement between Council, stakeholders and the community.

Key elements addressed in the Framework are:

  • Key Communication and Engagement Objectives
  • Principles that Guide the way we communicate and engage
  • Why we communicate and engage?
  • Who we communicate and engage with?
  • How we communicate and engage

Current Engagements

There are NIL Engagements underway at this time.



We would like your input on the priority areas of the Council’s service provision that we should focus on for the 2023/24 financial year.  
Council is committed to spending your rates wisely and providing community services, infrastructure and programs that suit your needs.
To do this, we conducted a survey to find out what is important to you.

We’ve started working on the 2023/24 draft budget and the review of Council’s 10 year financial plan. This survey was indented for you to share your thoughts on priorities for the next financial year.  
We seeked feedback from our residents and businesses early to understand what you see as important so we can include as much as possible into the draft document. 
By getting your feedback, we can plan to deliver a Budget in May 2023 that largely meets your expectations and aspirations.

Engagements where feedback received is being reviewed and awaiting outcomes


Every five (5) years Council is required to review its Dog Management Policy under the Dog Control Act 2000. This Policy affects most of our residents in some form or another and ours is now due to be reviewed. The review will specifically focus on:

  • A code relating to responsible ownership of dogs
  • The provision of declared areas – on / off leash, prohibited and restricted areas.
  • A fee structure – for registration and licensing.
  • And any other relevant matter


Council was seeking comment on a proposal to change Esplanade West Triabunna into a one-way traffic street.  The section is to flow from Melbourne Street to the RSL Club carpark near Vicary Street past the Eldercare Units.

Access off Vicary Street into the RSL Club car park will still be available but no further. This change to a one-way section of road was promoted in the Triabunna Tomorrow Plan.

This proposal is to reduce heavy vehicle traffic (i.e. Semi-trailers) that are damaging the road surface and also address safety concerns around the blind corner where visibility is poor. We encouraged the community to fill out the survey as the feedback on this consultation that would assist Council in its ultimate decision.  Council will consider all issues raised.

The survey ran for the length of June and Council are collating the information in early July and will then decide whether to make the change or not.

The circled area shows the access into the RSL car park and traffic can still enter this area via Vicary Street and Esplanade West.s

The above diagram shows the section from Melbourne Street to the RSL Car Park which will become one-way.
