Precinct committees

Precincts are committees of residents who meet regularly to discuss matters of concern to the local area. Precinct meetings are organised by volunteer local residents who are elected annually by members.

There are 13 Precincts covering all Waverley residents. All residents living within the boundaries of their Precinct are welcome to participate in their Precinct Committee Meetings. If you are not sure of which Precinct you belong to, visit our street search page.

Attending your local Precinct Committee Meeting is a great way to keep in touch with what is going on in your local area and how Council can assist.

Council staff and Councillors frequently attend meetings to provide information and to take Precinct concerns back to Council.

Waverley Council and Precinct Committees

Waverley Council has supported a resident Precinct system for over 30 years because we are committed to encouraging resident participation in Council decision-making. Council works closely with the Precincts and regularly sends out information which include:

  • development applications in the area
  • traffic management proposals
  • Council policies and management plans
  • landscaping and environmental plans
  • changes to local services
  • community services

The comments and recommendations of the Precinct meetings are forwarded to Council where appropriate action is taken. Council will consider Precinct comments as an important input into decision-making about changes, developments or plans for improvements for the area. Precincts are not decision-making committees, but a source of community opinion for your elected Councillors and for Council Officers.
