Accessibility information

This is the engagement page for the Our Knox 2025-2029 Council Plan and Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan engagement.

There are two phases to the engagement.

Phase 1 is a broad engagement survey for the entire community. You can expect this to be in a survey format. A print version of the survey is available to download for screen reading purposes. You can also contact if you would like us to provide it in any other format.

Phase 2 is the Our Knox community panel. You are invited to join the panel which will require you to attend four sessions. The sessions will be in person and you will be paid for the sessions. Selected participants will be supported to attend should they require reasonable adjustments.
To register your interest, please complete the expression of interest form.

Screen reading

Shape our priorities for the next four years to help us develop our next Council Plan

We are seeking community feedback to help us develop our next Council Plan. The plan will build on our Community Vision and have a strong focus on the health and wellbeing of our community.

The plan is our promise to the Knox community. It sets out what we will do to respond to changing needs and will be shaped by our aspirations, needs, values and priorities, and inform long term financial planning.

How to have your say

There are two ways you can get involved in shaping our priorities for the next four years.

  • Share your feedback on what is most important to you online, in person or in writing
  • Join the Our Knox Community Panel to dive deeper over a number of sessions and develop draft recommendations for the next Council Plan

Consultation and expressions of interest close 11.59pm on Monday 1 April 2024.

Everyone who gets involved can go into the draw to win a voucher for an amazing local experience and panel participants will be compensated $300.
