Why are we proposing changes to our Records Management Policy?

We've revised our Records Management Policy to ensure it reflects current legislative, business and community requirements.

The draft Policy confirms Council's commitment to:

  • Complying with legislative obligations in accordance with the Public Records Act 1974
  • Maintaining full and accurate records of all business activities, including decisions of Council
  • Ensuring records are readily accessible now and in the future.

What is the purpose of the draft Policy?

The Public Records Act and associated standards require Council to document a policy on its management of corporate records that fully and accurately reflect Council business activities. The draft Policy outlines Council’s commitment to effectively manage its records as a critical asset for the ongoing operations and service provision for the community.
