Policy Manual

Council is responsible for determining the strategic direction of the Town. Section 2.7 of the Local Government Act 1995 provides that Council is to determine the Town's policies. Council policies reflect this strategic direction and guide the Town’s decision making processes.

All Council policies will be reviewed at three year intervals, or more frequently if required.
