Below is a summary of what we intend to do early in our term as councillors.

If you would like to see our detailed strategy and our practical plan for making the council accountable to you, click here.

  • Reinstate livestreaming of public access sessions
  • Review delegations to staff, to ensure appropriate councillor oversight of decisions
  • Review KPIs and selection criteria for the General Manager position to ensure that these reflect a commitment to providing comprehensive, timely and open advice to the councillors.
  • Review the use of the ‘commercial in confidence’ classification and other devices used that may unnecessarily restrict information being provided to the public
  • Reform the council’s approach to freedom of information requests, with an emphasis complying with Legislatio and openness rather than secrecy
  • Ensure staff follow proper and appropriate public administration procedures regarding note taking so that decision making is well maintained and transparent.
