Council policies, plans and strategies

Policies, Plans and Strategies are our principles, rules and guidelines that we follow to make our city great. Read them here.

A policy is a clear statement that identifies Council’s position on a matter or issue. Our policies support the decision making of Council, and ensure that our strategic direction and processes are consistently implemented to produce high quality governance and services. We review our policies regularly, depending on how they are linked to our Long-Term Plan, legislation, or another review cycle decided by Council.
