Our Town Our Town

What is important to your community today?

What do residents and visitors really think of your local government area and the performance of your council?

For decades councils in Queensland have relied upon traditional community engagement tools such as surveys, feedback forms, town hall meetings and pop-up booths to find answers to these important questions.

Our communities though are changing, the world is moving faster and the LGAQ recognises that for NextGen councils’ new tools are needed.

To better support members the Association has today launched Our Town – an interactive digital dashboard that can provide near real-time insights into emerging issues, council performance, community safety and community sentiment.

Such insights can actively assist your council to make better local decisions, improve customer service, respond more quickly, and reduce operational risks.

As part of LG Sherlock, the Association is pleased to be able to offer your council FREE access to the Our Town platform for the next 12 months (through to June 30, 2021) allowing your council the opportunity to assess the value of such a tool.
