Consultation starts on Aurukun Community Safety Plan

by | Oct 13, 2020 | Community News

Aurukun residents and stakeholders are being invited to help develop a Community Safety Plan with consultations about to get underway in the Cape York community.

Aurukun Shire Council Mayor Keri Tamwoy said the plan would document both the current and future response to community safety to improve the standard of living in the Aurukun township.

“Dr Chris McLaughlin of Culturev8 has been engaged by Council to consult with the community to develop the plan,” she said.

“The Community Safety Plan will outline how Council will seek to enhance perceptions of safety, reduce crime and build community resilience.

“The strategic framework for this plan needs to reflect the current conditions in Aurukun and the wider Western Cape region as well as capture additional initiatives to effectively improve our standard of living.

“During October and November Dr McLaughlin will meet with stakeholders in both Aurukun and Cairns and he is keen to access any resources which the community thinks may inform the process.

“I urge all members of our community to have their say to ensure the plan meets local needs and trust both residents and stakeholders will value being part of this planning phase.”
