Thank you for your feedback. The Governance Rules were adopted at the Council meeting on 2 February 2021

Achieving good practice in governance

Council adopted the current Governance Rules at its Council Meeting on Tuesday 18 August 2020. A recent review of the Governance Rules has been conducted to provide a more comprehensive, clear and concise document that is easier for Council to understand their requirements under the new Local Government Act 2020 (Vic) and we would like to would like to consult with the community before finalising these documents.

Good governance at Council relies on Councillors, Council staff, the Wyndham community and other stakeholders being clear about their role and responsibilities and supporting positive and constructive relationships with each other. The Governance Rules (available to download below) set out how to do this as well as how Council meetings are conducted and how Council decisions are made.
