Risk Management

Council is committed to managing risk, both within the community and within its own operations and activities. We identify and manage these risks in a systematic manner using the principles set out in Standards Australia AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 Risk Management – Principles and Guidelines.

Council’s Risk Management Policy provides the framework for achieving this and the Risk Management Strategy details how the policy is implemented.
