Reconciliation Policy Statement

Maroondah City Council is committed to the development of an Indigenous Australian Action Plan as stated in the Council Plan 2006 - 2010. The Reconciliation Policy Statement reaffirms Council’s commitment to the important process of reconciliation and desire to build strong partnerships with the local Indigenous community. The Reconciliation Policy Statement outlines four key areas of commitment and identifies strategies to assist in achieving our vision.

The Reconciliation Policy Statement will be reviewed and evaluated in 2012.

Providing a foundation for the development of a Reconciliation Policy Statement is Council’s commitment to the following principles: 

  • Respect the contribution and importance of Indigenous history to the City of Maroondah
  • Be culturally sensitive and responsive to the needs and aspirations of Indigenous people
  • Be accountable, open and transparent to the community in decision making
  • Create and promote opportunities for the Indigenous community to be actively engaged and involved in consultation and planning processes.
