Policies support the decision making of Council, and ensure that the vision, mission and strategic direction of Council is consistently implemented. A policy is a statement of council’s position on a matter or issue.
We review our policies from time to time to ensure they remain appropriate and meet the purpose they were designed for.
Some policies are required to be reviewed to meet legislative requirements. For example, we are required to have a Gambling Venues Policy and must review that policy at least once every three years. Other policies are reviewed either according to a review cycle decided by the Council (e.g. every five years) or when it is considered a policy no longer fully meets its purpose.
Your feedback forms a key part of many of our policy development and review processes. Your skills and experience can be included in the future of our city. To see which policies are currently being reviewed go to the Have Your Say page.
