Committees form an important part of our interaction with community members and key stakeholders and are one of the ways that can help us deliver on the outcomes identified in the Community Vision.
‘Committee’ is defined as any Working Group, Reference Group or Delegated Committee providing information, advice, suggestions, and support to Council and staff when determining the best actions moving forward.
