Community Development

Community development is an important part of how local governments interact with the community and create resilient and interconnected people, organisations and neighbourhoods. 

The City’s role in community development is as a facilitator, educator and enabler, connecting the local community with resources that will help make a positive impact.

The City's Community Development programs contribute towards the growth of community through building the capacity, skills and knowledge of people.
