Policy positions

Our policy positions give a clear direction of council's intent.

Our policy positions give a clear direction of council's intent

Policy positions support our delivery and provide a point of reference. They say what council's view is on specific issues and help our council and staff give advice, manage issues and make decisions for the future.

Our policy positions inform the information we give to the community and to business.

We use them to:

  • Guide decision-making
  • Inform planning
  • Drive implementation
  • Engage stakeholders.

We also use policy positions help us to advocate to government departments.
