The tool kit guides Local Government managers and elected representatives through an active public consultation process that delivers quality information from diverse communities about how they define and value their priorities. It has been designed to support Local Government strategic planning processes and to assist the allocation of finite resources to defined and at times, competing community needs. The tool kit reinforces the importance of undertaking consultation with diverse communities during strategic planning processes and before discretionary funds are allocated.
