Draft Governance Rules and Draft Public Transparency Policy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We have developed new draft Governance Rules and a draft Public Transparency Policy as required by the new Local Government Act 2020 and to further reinforce Council's strong commitment to good governance and transparent decision making.

However, we would like to consult with our community before finalising these documents to ensure we are meeting community expectations.

We welcome any feedback on the draft Governance Rules and Public Transparency Policy by 5pm on Wednesday 5 August 2020.

Draft documents are available in the Document Library.

Soft copies of the draft Governance Rules and Public Transparency Policy are available on our Document Library (see right).

Copies of the documents will also be available at the central Ballarat Library at 178 Doveton Street North.
