Council Policies and Procedures

Policies and procedures are essential to ensure that legal, fair and consistent decisions are made across the Council. They support Council in achieving its corporate objectives and provide crucial guidelines for Councillors, staff and other stakeholders. Without sound policies and procedures there is a greater risk of inconsistency, confusion and inefficiency.

Policies express Council's position on a particular issue or subject. Procedures describe the specific steps that are to be followed in order to implement a policy.
