Delegations of Authority

Under Section 377 of the Local Government Act 1993, a council may, by resolution, delegate to the General Manager (Chief Executive Officer - CEO) or any other person or body certain functions of the council.   

The General Manager (CEO) may sub-delegate under Section 378(2) of the Local Government Act, a function delegated to the General Manager (CEO) by the council to any person or body (including another employee of the council).  The General Manager (CEO) has delegated those matters as set out in the document "Part 2 - Delegations Register".  

The delegations are recorded in Council’s Register of Delegations and are recorded in two parts:

This Delegations Register should be read in conjunction with Council's Policies and Procedures as well as relevant Acts and Regulations.
