Ministerial Directions

Ministerial Directions, based on the Board of Inquiry’s recommendations, were issued to the newly elected Glenorchy City Council in late January 2018 by the Minister for Planning and Local Government, The Honourable Peter Gutwein MP. These are available on the Department of Premier and Cabinet – Local Government Division’s website.

The Directions focus on several key areas including: governance, training, policies and procedures, committees and memberships, compliance and employment contracts.

In line with Direction 7, there is a requirement for Council to report quarterly (for the term of the current Council) to the Minister on the progress of actions taken to comply with the Directions, and make that report publicly available on Council’s website. Accordingly, the Ministerial Directions Implementation Quarterly Progress Reports, as approved by Council, are available below.
