Policies

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.
