The Community Project Proposal (CPP) Procedure provides information to volunteer and community groups on how they can formally propose projects to Council. The application and procedure ensure that all aspects of working on public land (council owned or managed) and delivering projects soundly are considered, for major and minor project proposals.
Reporting of CPP’s to Council is conducted quarterly (February, May, August and November) and considers all projects, especially where requesting resourcing from Council. The Council report formalises and acknowledges volunteer and in-kind contribution as well as considering the endorsement of a project which may defer the delivery of other planned and programmed works.
The CPP procedure also supports grant funding opportunities by demonstrating Council support for works on Council managed/owned land. The formal endorsement demonstrates consideration by the applicant and Council of project aspects including planning, design and standards, accessibility, heritage, the environment, site management and safety, stakeholder and neighbour consultation, resourcing g asset management.
