Through the facilitation and support of 355c advisory committees of Council and interagency forums, Council endeavours to build community capacity in partnership with a wide cross section of stakeholders.

Interested and committed individual community members, community groups and service providers get the opportunity to contribute advice through Council's committees on a range of planning and operational matters.

Through interagency forums, community capacity is encouraged by the sharing of ideas, information and facilitation of partnership. These forums are generally open to organisations who have an interest in helping make Port Stephens a great place to live.
