October 2022 EOI:

Council is seeking Expression of Interests (EOI) from local community members to represent the local area in a Community Voice Panel on planning work for Westmead South.

The Westmead South Community Voice Panel is a coordinated representative sample of community members who agree to be consulted about the issues, topics and preparation of a Master Plan for Westmead South.

EOI applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Familiarity with Westmead South and Cumberland as a resident, business owner or worker.
  • Representation of a range of perspectives from within the local community.
  • Proximity of home or workplace to Westmead South.
  • Ability to express views clearly and respectfully (language/interpreter support is available).
  • A demographic mix that reflects the community.

If successful, you would play an important role in planning for the future of Westmead South by providing direct feedback to Council and help shape the draft Master Plan as its development progresses.
