The Boroondara City Council Governance Rules outline the rules that Councillors and others must follow while they are serving the community.

This includes:

  • how decisions are made
  • meeting procedures for Council meetings
  • meeting procedures for Delegated Committees
  • meeting procedures for Community Asset Committees
  • how to share any conflicts of interest
  • how to manage informal Councillor meetings
  • how to manage confidential information.

The Boroondara City Council Governance Rules also include our Election Period Policy. This policy provides a framework for decisions that Council can't make during the election period in line with the Local Government Act 2020.

We're currently proposing changes to the Election Period Policy, following an administrative review. Read about the proposed changes and community consultation on the Engage Boroondara Updates to our Election Period Policy page
