Advisory committees

Our Advisory Committees provide strategic guidance and recommendations to the elected council. They are a key function for enabling public participation in decision making with committee members comprising of representatives from the community, stakeholder groups and Council (including elected Councillors).

The following Advisory Committees have been established by the elected Council:

  1. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Committee
  2. Audit and Risk Committee*
  3. Floodplain Management Committee*
  4. Local Traffic Committee*
  5. Roads Review Committee
  6. Strategic Property and Community Facilities Committee
  7. Community Engagement, Awards and Grants Committee

*Statutory Committees 

Statutory Advisory Committees are governed by external guidelines which are embedded in their own Charters.  Although the role of such committees is mainly advisory, they may have authority to perform some additional functions as allowed by their governing legislation.
