Councillor Confidentiality Policy

Council operates in an environment of public accountability and scrutiny.  The organisation seeks to comprehensively inform the public of issues under consideration and the nature of the decisions made by Council.

In order to contribute to the environment of open decision making, Council aims to ensure that the number of matters which are considered In Camera by Council are kept to a minimum.

It is necessary to balance the need for Council to consider certain matters In Camera against the fundamental principle of open decision making. Items classified as confidential generally relate to commercial in confidence information, which has been provided to Council by tenderers, contractors, joint venturers or subsidiary companies or confidential information which is confidential prior to a public announcement.
