Policies & guidelines

We’re required to implement and publish various policies according to legislation.

We name these Statuary Polices ‘SPO’ and develop additional policies so that we can cover all of our responsibilities and areas of service delivery.

We also have a Communications Guideline (PDF) to that outlines communication standards for Councillors, Council employees and contractors.

Policies set out the principles that we apply in our service delivery.

We approve Council’s policies and Communications Guideline through the Council meeting process.

We also have internal procedures that we follow to implement our policies on a day-to-day basis.
