Election period policy review

This review was undertaken in response to amendments to the Local Government Act 1989 (Act) in November 2015, with the inclusion of section 93B into the Act which required all councils to adopt an election period policy by 31 March 2016.

The purpose of the policy is to provide the community with an understanding of the procedures each council will adopt during the election period to ensure the fairness of the election, appropriate use of council resources and to prevent inappropriate decision making. Importantly, the policy must be provided to all current councillors and be published on the council website.
