Delegates Reports

Councillor participation in peak associations, local and regional forums and specific issues committees is an important part of effective governance and representation.

As part of their governance and representation obligations, individual Councillors represent Council on a range of committees.  The committees operate outside of the section 86 (of the Local Government Act 1989) Committees established by Council.

The Councillor’s role as a delegate on these committees is to represent the position of Council, and involves reporting back to Council on the issues, or progress of the committees.  A copy of the monthly Delegates' reports are below.
