Delegations Register


A delegation is the conferral of a power or function to a person by a person or body that is vested with that power or function.

Council is a creature of statute, established under the Local Government Act. Accordingly, Council has no common law or inherent powers. All of Council’s powers and functions come from legislation. In the interests of efficiency, many of Council’s decision making powers and duties can be, and are, delegated by Council to the Chief Executive Officer. In turn, and pursuant to section 101 of the Local Government Act, the Chief Executive Officer may sub-delegate certain powers and functions to appropriate Council officers (staff) within the organisation.

Council reviewed its delegations at its Ordinary Meeting held on 23 September 2019. The Chief Executive Officer subsequently reviewed all subdelegations on 24 September 2019.
