Community engagement

There are many ways for residents to get involved with their community and Council, including events, forums and community engagement opportunities.

Community engagement

Every year, Council seeks feedback on many new plans, projects, works and issues in the local area. Feedback from residents allows Council to incorporate the public's views into its decision making process.

Join our online consultation panel and have Your Say!

Want to have your say on what's happening in our region? Then sign up to Council's online community consultation panel, YourSay, and contribute to surveys and discussion forums on topics that matter to you.

It's free and easy to join - and you can choose your own user name to comment anonymously.  Your privacy is protected because the panel is hosted and moderated by an external organisation (Bang the Table). 

YourSay allows you to have your say anytime you access the internet, and is ideal if you do not have time to attend public meetings. To register, go to YourSay and be part of Council's online community panel.

Community and cultural events

Cairns Regional Council holds many free community and cultural events throughout the year to celebrate the vibrant and diverse character of our area.  View events
