The Council's policies enhance its strategic directions and provide guidance to both the organisation and the community.

Policies, Codes of Practice and Codes of Conduct are fundamental components of a Council’s good governance framework.

Policies set directions, guide decision making and inform the community about how the Council will normally respond and act to various issues.

When a decision is made in accordance with a Council policy or code, both the decision-maker and the community can be assured that the decision reflects the Council’s overall aims and principles of action. Accordingly, policies and codes can be used in many contexts to:

  • reflect the key issues and responsibilities facing a Council
  • provide a policy context and framework for developing more detailed objectives and management systems
  • guide staff and ensure consistency in delegated and day-to-day decision-making
  • clearly inform the community of a Council’s response to various issues.
