The documentation, maintenance and review of the Shire’s collection of policies is one of the roles of Council, outlined in section 2.7 of the Local Government Act 1995.

As a fundamental element of corporate governance, local government policies are developed to provide guidance and direction on Shire activities. Regular reviews over a five year cycle ensure that local government policies remain relevant and applicable.

Council’s role is to govern corporate decision-making and determine the strategic development of policies, while the CEO and their administration is responsible for the implementation of such policies.

Please note that Council’s policies do not include the executive policies. These are policies implemented by the CEO regarding the management of staff or that provide further guidance and direction to staff on how a Council policy is undertaken.
