good-governance-coverThe Local Government Act 2009 sets out the principles local government should follow to ensure accountability, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability. Good governance concerns the way decisions are made and the manner in which services are provided to the community, including ensuring effective structures, systems, processes and procedures are in place to ensure council is properly operated. The governance guide and quick guide below have been produced as a resource for the mayor, councillors and employees of Ipswich City Council, as well as members of the broader Ipswich community.
