Draft Governance Rules

Council is inviting feedback from the community on the draft Governance Rules.

Council proposes to adopt Governance Rules to govern the conduct of Council meetings and to promote the good governance of our community.   It is proposed that the Governance Rules commence from 1 September 2020 (but after the Council Meeting scheduled for that night) and will replace the Procedural Matters Local Law (No 1. of 2018). It is also proposed to discontinue the practice of opening the Council Meeting with a prayer.

Council is inviting feedback from the community on the draft Governance Rules.  Feedback may be provided by email to civic.administration@whittlesea.vic.gov.au or by mail to City of Whittlesea, Locked Bag 1, Bundoora MDC VIC 3083. Feedback will be received until 5.00pm on 7 August 2020.

Please contact Council’s Governance Department on 9217 2223 should you have any questions or require any reasonable adjustments to enable you to provide feedback.

Any feedback received will be provided to the Panel of Administrators (Council) prior to the 1 September 2020 Council Meeting for their consideration.
