GLENORCHY Council’s new online engagement platform, ‘Let’s talk, Glenorchy’, is the place to discover upcoming council projects, share ideas and give feedback about the topics that are important to the community.

Since its launch at the end of 2020, almost 600 people have given feedback on a range of different projects from land sales to project masterplans and future council strategies.

Acting Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said she was grateful to see plenty of engagement from the community.

“Since we launched our online engagement hub, more than 400 people have registered to provide continuous feedback and share ideas on a range of topics that are important to them,” she said.

“Listening to our community is a key part of council’s role and the feedback we receive helps to inform our future projects.”

The Let’s talk, Glenorchy platform enables people to go online and provide feedback at a time that is convenient for them, accessing a range of interactive tools to suit their needs.

There are quick polls that take a matter of seconds to complete.

The site also offers registration to complete more detailed surveys and allows each user to tailor their engagement experience, such as using the interactive maps where users can drop virtual ‘pins’ at places of interest in the city.

Let’s talk, Glenorchy works alongside council’s various face-to-face engagement activities to create more opportunities for everyone from all backgrounds, cultures and abilities.

Council is inviting people to take a test drive of the site and get involved.

If you don’t feel confident on a computer, phone Mel Fazackerley or Andrea Marquardt at Glenorchy City Council on 6216 6800 for assistance.
