Good governance is a key factor in the effective operation of Richmond Valley Council.
It is important for several reasons. It not only gives the local community confidence in its council, but improves the trust elected members and staff have in their own decision-making processes.
It also leads to better decisions and helps Council meet its legislative responsibilities.
Governance covers the planning, reporting and financial decisions made by Council. The governance cycle is referred to as Integrated Planning and Reporting and includes documents that arise from the Community Strategic Plan. See below.
