Council has a framework which establishes the use of portfolio teams of Councillors.
The portfolio framework aligns Council functions, processes, and structure. Councillor representation on committees, boards and external bodies is also aligned with their portfolio.
The five portfolios:
We will provide inclusive and accessible public spaces; quality services; and opportunities for our community to participate, feel safe and be active and healthy.
Development and Planning
We will deliver activities and projects that are worthy of our position as the capital of Western Victoria, and will capitalise on this leadership to drive jobs and investment across the region.
Infrastructure and Environment
We will plan for growth to ensure our community’s infrastructure and natural environment are protected and improved, and our city’s connectivity is sustainably enhanced.
Business Services & Policy and Innovation
We will provide open and transparent decision making, and lobby and improve our relationships with all levels of government to enhance our ability to deliver key projects and initiatives.
