Why do I need to register to use Comment on Cockburn?

Before you can take part, we ask that you create an account.

We respect that your privacy is important to you. That’s why we've listened to the needs of our users and made the account creation process simple and straightforward. The only personal information we collect from you is your email and your suburb, unless you choose to answer some of our optional questions.

We aim to provide an effective community platform that encourages engagement and allows our members to be better informed about the developments in your suburb and the wider City of Cockburn. We want to create a dynamic community of regular users and we are continually developing new ways of engaging with our members.

We believe the best way to achieve both of these goals is through a simplified account registration for our users.

What we collect from you?

The only compulsory fields you need to answer are:

- Your email

- A username that you will use on Comment on Cockburn

- A password to ensure your account is secure.

- Your suburb

By registering, you will join a growing number of residents who will occasionally be emailed by us about new projects. 

Does the City accept all submissions?

While the City welcomes your feedback, submissions that contain comments that are derogatory or defamatory are not acceptable.  As a minimum the City will redact any such comments, however, it also reserves the right to discount such submissions.
