Help shape projects in your community


We love knowing how our residents and ratepayers feel about their community, and how we can help improve Cockburn for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike.

Have your say about what happens in your community by logging on to Comment on Cockburn, from the convenience of your own device 24/7.

Some interesting consultations we’ll need your thoughts on in future months include sporting reserves in Treeby and other suburbs, an animal exercise and management plan and verge treatments.

Comment on Cockburn is a free-to-register online platform offered by the City of Cockburn where locals have their say about a variety of City projects happening within the council’s boundaries.

City of Cockburn Corporate Communications Manager Samantha Seymour-Eyles said nearly 6,000 people had registered at Comment on Cockburn since it was established in 2016.

“The City hopes to at least double this number by the end of 2020 to encourage more people to have their say about where they live,” Ms Seymour-Eyles said.

“The platform’s online surveys enable participants to get their message across about a variety of projects proposed for their suburbs, helping make them more liveable with guidance from the people who call them home.”

Comment on Cockburn is a way to learn about current and past City projects, plus find other ways to have your opinions recorded about projects at workshops and info sessions.

“We’re committed when it comes to hearing your opinions; we’ve even held a community info session in a sea container at CY O’Connor Beach on a 40 degree day!”

Popular consultations have included transport and traffic projects, our beaches, dog parks, town planning, parks and environment, sporting infrastructure, art and library facilities, events and heritage issues.
