SOUTH Gippsland Shire Council has developed a new online engagement platform, ‘Your Say South Gippsland’, which is now ready for use.

Your Say South Gippsland gives community members the opportunity to shape council projects and services, the council said.

The platform is a one-stop-shop for all council feedback opportunities where participants will access interactive maps, community forums, online panels, surveys and more.

Community members are encouraged to register for the platform to receive regular updates on projects and when new opportunities are available. Your Say South Gippsland is available to access at yoursay.southgippsland.vic.gov.au.

The platform will complement and promote other community engagement activities including face-to-face sessions such as community meetings.

Your Say South Gippsland has replaced the previous OurSay system, which is no longer operational. Community members who participated through OurSay will be invited to register for the new platform.

“Council is very excited to present Your Say South Gippsland to the community as it provides a dedicated space where they can make an impact on our region,” South Gippsland Shire Mayor Cr Mohya Davies said.

“The platform has been designed as the source for all council engagement projects – so community members can register once for all upcoming opportunities.

“Collaboration between council and our community is a significant priority and Your Say South Gippsland is one way we do that. We expect to see the platform quickly fill with opportunities for the community to take part in,” Cr Davies said.
