Supporting strategies and policies

Here we describe the supporting policies that guide our decision making. 

The following Policies are generally reviewed every three years, on the same cycle as the Long-Term Plan.  Reviews and amendments can be made outside of this cycle if there is a need for it. All amendments are publicly consulted on before council adopts any newly revised Policy.
