We’re seeking community feedback on Baw Baw Shire Council’s Draft Governance Rules. The Governance Rules support Baw Baw Shire Council in ensuring good governance and decision making, in the best interests of the public.

These Rules make clear the procedures of Council Meetings, for the Mayor and Councillors, staff of Baw Baw Shire, and members of the community wishing to participate in this process. Council must adopt and keep in force Governance Rules under Section 60 of the Local Government Act 2020.

  • Ensuring Council decisions and actions are taken in accordance with the relevant law.
  • Achieving the best outcomes for the municipal community.
  • Engaging the municipal community in strategic planning and strategic decision making.
  • Ensuring public transparency.
