Best practice council policies

Find best practice policies on topics including governance arrangements, election period policies and councillors code of conduct.

Our audit program aims to:

  • promote an effective, voluntary compliance culture
  • encourage good practice
  • achieve transparent governance across local government

To support this, we’ve collected examples of best practice policies from our compliance audits. The information below has been shared with the permission of the relevant council.

These governance arrangements are required as part of the Local Government Act.
