To ensure there is transparency and openness in Council decision making, Council has adopted a Lobbying Policy that sets out a framework for appropriate lobbying.

Lobbying Policy (PDF 238.3KB)

Lobbying of Council officials is where a person or organisation makes representations to Council with a direct interest in a matter or by acting on behalf of others.  These people are called lobbyists and Council’s policy requires them to register at the button link below so their lobbying is open and accountable.

Council will maintain a register of lobbyists at the bottom of this page.

Lobbyists does not include the following people/organisations:

  • applicants or owners for a development application;
  • charitable, religious and non-profit organisations;
  • community organisations and individuals making representations to inform the Council of their views on matters of public interest;
  • peak industry bodies and professional organisations who represent the interests of their members;
  • trade unions; or
  • professionals, such as accountants, architects, lawyers, surveyors and town planners, where contact with Council on behalf of a client may be an incidental but necessary part of their usual work in order to provide their technical or professional services to their client.
