A beautiful day on the river!


Welcome to Mackay Regional Council's dedicated community engagement hub, Connecting Mackay.

Through the online discussion forums, surveys and other feedback tools you can quickly and easily contribute your ideas, opinions and comments on key issues and projects. By subscribing you can also stay up to date on projects which interest you - we invite you to become part of this very important online hub.

Mackay Regional Council is committed to engaging the Mackay community in its projects and plans to better the region we all love to live in!

Importantly, community engagement does not replace the decision-making functions of council. There are many factors that can influence the decision-making process, including costs, technical aspects, environmental concerns, legal requirements and political commitment. Rather, these processes are designed to ensure that council has access to a broad range of information about community needs, opinions and options prior to decisions being made.

Without the input of the community council cannot make a fully informed decision.

What’s more, the act of engaging gives the community the opportunity to understand the process and all the factors involved in council making its decisions.
