Council has developed a Governance Framework to provide an understanding in relation to accountability and responsibility, and the roles and functions of Council in accordance with the local government principles.

The Framework is not a policy or statement of intent, but a document which outlines Council's governance policies and practices.  The Framework has been developed in line with the core governance principles consisting of transparency, accountability, integrity, due diligence, and economy, efficiency and effectiveness. 

The Governance Framework can be accessed by clicking here, further information can be obtained by selecting a function within each of the core governance principles.
