Governance Rules 2020

The Local Government Act 2020 mandates that Council adopt Governance Rules on or before 1 September 2020. Council released their Draft rules on 15 July 2020 for community engagement with a very short submission period closing on 30 July 2020.

BCRRA has concerns that these newly proposed rule changes will be detrimental to Council’s ability to properly and genuinely engage with the community, and made a submission to Council which you can read below.

BCRRA is also concerned that although the new Governance Rules are intended to be read in conjunction with Council’s Public Transparency Policy, this Policy has not yet been developed by Council and will only be available to the community after Friday the 14th August!!
