Community Committees of Management
A Community Committee of Management is a group of volunteers who are elected to manage, operate and maintain a facility for the community in an efficient, effective and practical manner. This includes facilities such as halls, reserves and pavillions.
Council recognises and supports the significant contribution made by community committees of management and their ability to:
- Encourage, promote and provide for the use of the facility for user groups and the community as a whole in a fair and equitable manner
- Ensure the facility meets the needs of the local community
- Undertake the day to day running of the facility independently of Council
As part of Council’s support and recognition to these volunteer committees of management, we implement agreements to formalise the use and management of the facility based on its ownership and facility’s purpose.
Section 86 Special Committees of Council
Wellington Shire Council has 8 Special Committees of Council. These committees have been delegated responsibility under Section 86 of the Local Government Act 1981 to manage and maintain their reserves.
