    In October this year, the Manningham community will vote in a new Manningham Council. One of the Council's first tasks is to develop a four year Council Plan, ten year Asset Plan and ten year Financial Plan in pursuit of our Community Vision 2040.

    A Community Panel will make recommendations to Council on what to include in the Plans. Information from the Community Survey, Targeted Conversations, our partners, state and federal government policy and the Manningham community (e.g. transport needs and health) is also considered.

    Community Vision 2040

    Join one of our targeted conversations

    What are Targeted Conversations?

    They are small group discussions (2h – 20 participants) where we bring together people with similar backgrounds or interests to discuss detailed information around topics that affect their needs and priorities. The discussions will focus on challenges and priorities for these groups.

    Why Participate?

    The insights from these conversations will directly inform the work of the Community Panel. We will include the summary reports of the targeted conversations into the background information document given to the Community Panel before the deliberation begins.

    We will limit the number of participants to 20 and will use demographic filters to ensure that the groups are diverse and represent Manningham's diversity.

    Apply by filling in the Targeted Conversations survey. Applications close Tuesday 9 July 2024 at 5.00 pm.

    We're seeking a diverse group of residents, workers, students – anyone 16+ with a Manningham address to join our Community Panel.

    Community panels are an exciting new democratic approach that an increasing number of governments have adopted, to plan ahead. If you want to make a real impact on decisions made by Council, then this is your chance.

    How does this work?

    • We'll be starting the selection process with an independent company to randomly choose 8,000 addresses across Manningham.
    • If you're one of the selected addresses, you'll receive a letter in the mail inviting you to join our Deliberative Community Panel.
    • The letter will include a link and/or phone number to register your interest.
    • From everyone who expresses interest, the independent company will then randomly select a smaller group of 40 people to form the final panel.
    • This process ensures the panel represents a diverse group that reflects the voices of our entire community.

    What does the Deliberative Community Panel do?

    This panel will play a crucial role in developing our major strategic plans. Through facilitated discussions and learning sessions, the participants will help determine key priorities for Manningham and provide a list of recommendations that inform Council decisions for our key documents including the Council Plan, Asset Plan, and Financial Plan.

    We will hold several sessions with participants between September 2024 and February 2025. These will be held mainly on weekends, locally. Once the final Community Panel is selected, they will find out more about how we will all work together.

    As it will be a significant commitment involving up to 50 hours, all panelists will receive payment in recognition of their time and commitment.
