Our policies reflect the culture, values and strategic direction of the Council and our community.

Policies provide an explanation as to why activities are undertaken, provide guidelines for action and are a mechanism for dealing with matters as they arise on a day-to-day basis.

By-laws are local laws established by councils to deal with issues specific to the areas under the care and control of council.
