Thanks to everyone who provided their feedback on our community consultation

The City of Stonnington is home to over 106,000 residents and over 18,000 businesses.

During the last 12 months we invited residents, businesses and visitors to participate in a wide range of community consultation projects from the redevelopment of Toorak Village and the Prahran Skate Park, to helping inform the content of our Disability Inclusion and Access Plan, our annual budget and much more.

We also made many improvements to the way we seek your feedback including the implementation of a new digital engagement platform, we've completed more face-to-face engagement in our libraries, parks and activity centres, and introduced a new accessibility tool here on our Connect Stonnington engagement hub.

We sought out feedback from the community on what improvements you would like to see in this space, what we are currently are doing well and what we could improve.
