Community Engagement

Our philosophy includes engaging communities through 4 areas of focus - Interest, Place, Commonality and Circumstance. Different terms are used to describe the concept of community engagement, including public participation and community consultation. This typically refers to the process of involving people in the development and implementation of decisions that affect them.
