Council Policies

Our policies are statements that outline Council’s position and governing principles about particular issues. They are formal governing documents that are adopted by the elected Aldermen on recommendation of the Council management.

Policies are formed by the law and regulations that govern the Council, the directions outlined in Council’s strategic documents, and the community’s expectations. Their role is to:

  • ensure compliance with Council’s statutory responsibilities
  • set Council’s standards
  • improve the management of risk.


Our current policies are listed as links to PDF documents below.
