Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

MEDIA RELEASE - Listening Post heads to Nelson

5 March 2021

Nelson residents are invited to talk to their local Councillors about what matters to them and their community as part of an upcoming event.

Glenelg Shire Council’s Listening Post event will take place on Thursday 25 March at the Nelson Hotel from 6pm - 7pm. The Listening Posts have been running since 2018 and provide a forum for feedback on current issues affecting local communities.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said Councillors were keen to hear from Nelson residents, particularly following the impact of COVID-19.

“The past twelve months have been incredibly challenging, particularly for our cross-border communities, so a Listening Post in Nelson will be a great way to discuss the impacts of border closures, tourism restrictions and more,” she said.

“We want to get a better understanding of the things that matter in the community and how Council can help to support Nelson residents with any issues or opportunities. Come and say hello, have your voice heard and meet your local Councillors.

“We will also use the forum to provide an update on current and future Council projects, events and activities, such as the Glenelg Shire 2040 Community Plan.

“The plan has been a collaboration of many voices including the Nelson community, and we thank them for their participation and feedback on the Plan over the past 12-18 months.”

For further information please contact the Glenelg Shire on 1300 GLENELG or email

Residents unable to attend the event can leave their feedback online through the dedicated Listening Post forum on the Your Say Glenelg website. Visit
