Advisory Committees

One way in which source information we need is via advisory committees or working groups.

An advisory committee

  • doesn't have any formal delegated powers to act on the council’s behalf
  • is formed to make recommendations that inform decisions
  • gives council the opportunity to recruit particular expertise as well as access community resources and opinions to help guide the decisions

Recommendations from advisory committees have no legal standing unless they are adopted by the council at a formal council meeting. Council is not bound to accept the recommendation of an advisory committee.

Our advisory committees operate under a terms of reference document which sets out the committee’s purpose and how it will function.

Council retains control over the membership and purpose of the committee.

Council Advisory Committees minutes, terms of reference and membership details are:
