Council Announced as a Finalist in the 2020 IAP2 Australasia Core Values Awards
We’re proud to have been announced as a finalist in the 2020 IAP2 Australasia Core Values Awards for the category of 'Planning Project Award' for our project Nature's Best, Let's Plan the Rest.
The IAP2 Australasia Core Values Awards recognise and encourage projects and organisations that are at the forefront of public participation. The awards were created to encourage excellence, quality and innovation in public participation.
We’ve been recognised as a finalist for using extensive, innovative tools and techniques to successfully and actively engage over 10% of our diverse and dispersed community in strategic planning for the future, within a modest budget. We attribute our success to strong community buy-in through adopting an outreach approach; intensive hands-on Mayor and CEO ownership and involvement in the process; and integrated use of traditional, face-to-face and online tools to achieve robust outcomes.
The District Council of Yankalilla is the only finalist from a regional area and the only finalist from South Australia. We’re punching above our weight and in good company with other finalists being announced as the City of South Perth, City of Sydney & the Department of Transport (Victoria), just to name a few.
The 2020 Core Values Awards winners will be announced during our Virtual Gala Awards Celebration later this year (at a date to be announced).
