Have Your Say — Governance Rules and Public Transparency Policy

The new Local Government Act 2020 (Vic) is now in place.

We have prepared a new set of Governance Rules, and a new Public Transparency Policy. These documents bring together many of our existing policies, strategies and commitments, and help us facilitate open and transparent decision-making. The documents were adopted on 11 August 2020.

Governance Rules

The Governance Rules set out requirements for how Council meetings are conducted and how Council decisions are made.

Public Transparency Policy

The Public Transparency Policy formalises Council’s commitment to open and transparent decision-making. It describes which Council information is publicly available, and how to access this information. It also explains when Council information may be confidential or when making it available may be contrary to the public interest.
