Lismore City Council is inviting residents and members of the community to contribute to Your Say Lismore, an innovative online platform that creates a two-way conversation between the community and Council.
Your Say Lismore provides an easy way for community members to participate in decision-making processes and give feedback on issues that are important to them.
The key advantages
Council says that one of the key advantages of Your Say Lismore is that it allows the community to be informed about various policies, plans, and projects that Council is working on. These include community strategic plans, delivery programs, and annual budgets, as well as policies and strategic plans related to economic development, sport and recreation, and other areas of interest.
Your Say Lismore also provides information on planning matters such as Development Control Plans and the Local Environmental Plan, as well as major infrastructure and capital works projects.
Council says it is also a platform for the community to engage with Council on Development Applications and proposals, as well as events and other issues that are of interest to the community and stakeholders. This helps to ensure Council is aware of the community’s opinion and ideas so they can be fully considered during the decision making process.
Some of the current engagement projects on Your Say Lismore include:
- Northern Rivers Rail Trail, a walking and cycling trail following the old railway line.
- The Lismore Skatepark and Youth Precinct, a project which aims to create a new youth-focused space in the CBD.
- Rural and Nature-Based Tourism Development Control Plan, which aims to support the development of sustainable and responsible tourism in the region.
- The Safer Cities: Her Way project, which aims to improve safety and reduce violence against women in public spaces.

For a council who never answers the phone and has anti social no reply emails to tell you your request will be processed in a months time but never is anyway. I would not be fool enough to think the council gave a toss.
It’s all about themselves keeping their power tripping jobs.
