The Local Government Community Satisfaction Survey 2014 revealed that Monash Council needed to improve in community Consultation & Engagement and Communication. Due to this, the council has decided to hold ‘listening posts’ in different areas for the community to have an opportunity to raise issues or provide feedback. For those of you who do not know what ‘listening posts’ are, it means Council staff members will attend different areas where the community will be able to approach them and raise any concerns they have.

There will be a ‘listening post’ on Sunday 20 July 8am – 1pm at Mulgrave Farmers Market. This is your chance to inform the Councillors or council staff members of any concerns you have. Don’t forget to bring your ‘sticky notes’!

Other Listening Posts will be held:

Thursday 31 July, 3.30 – 6.30 pm
The Glen level 2

Saturday 2 August, 10.30 – 12.30 am
Holmesglen Reserve Ashwood

Saturday 23 August, 10.30am  – 12.30pm
Warrawee Park, Oakleigh

  1. Sunday was a step in the right direction. It was good to talk to Cr Rob Davies and CEO Andi Diamond.
    As a result of the meeting EM&U and will meet with Council’s traffic engineering staff to start an education process about what constitutes safe on road infrastructure. The first site to review is the new line marking on Remington Drive in Glen Waverley.


    1. If all Councillors and Council staff resnpond to the Listening Posts as Cr Davies and the CEO did then communication could improve in Monash. Of course this also depends on action being taken on feedback and on YOU. You need to join in the Listening Posts and give Council your feedback. If you would to but are nervous email EM&U and we will find a member to go along with you.
