The draft Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) adopted by Council for public comment was developed on a ‘Reflect’ basis and advertised for a 30-day public comment period concluding 30 April 2019.

Engagement Activities & Promotion

To promote the draft RAP and obtain feedback, the City held a Community Workshop on 25 March 2019, promoted on the City's engagement portal, social media platforms and a placement in the Echo newspaper.

At the end of the public comment period, community feedback received through engagement sessions resulted in minor changes to enhance the final document that were collated and incorporated into a final draft RAP.

The RAP was then submitted to Reconciliation Australia for conditional endorsement.

Reconciliation Australia suggested that in consideration of the level of detail included in the plan, plus the advanced steps already taken toward reconciliation, the City consider amending the RAP from a 'Reflect' RAP to an 'Innovate' RAP.

Outcome

At the 15 October 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to adopt the Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.
