Draft Compliance and Enforcement Policy
Council at its meeting of 14 April 2016 considered a report in respect to a Draft Compliance and Enforcement Policy.  It was resolved that Council:
1.       Approve the public exhibition of the Draft Compliance and Enforcement Policy for a 42 day period.
2.       Receive a report back on the Draft Compliance and Enforcement Policy following public exhibition.
The Draft Compliance and Enforcement Policy is based on the Ombudsman’s 2015 Model Compliance and Enforcement Policy.  The draft Policy provides information about Council’s position on compliance and enforcement matters in the local government area.  The draft policy in combination with Council’s adopted Compliance Response Framework, will provide structure for consistency and transparency in decision making, and facilitate a proportionate approach to compliance and enforcement.  It is also intended to assist Council staff to act promptly, effectively and consistently in response to allegations of unlawful activity.
The exhibition period will be for 42 days from Wednesday, 27 April 2016 till 8 June 2016.  The Council report and Draft Compliance and Enforcement Policy may be viewed at Coffs Harbour City Council Administration Building, 2 Castle Street, Coffs Harbour during normal business hours and at Coffs Harbour City Council Library’s during normal opening times or via the link below.
Postal submissions to the Draft Compliance Response Framework are to be addressed to:
The General Manager
Locked Bag 155,
Coffs Harbour 2450
Emailed to or via the online form below and are to be submitted no later than 4.30 pm on Wednesday 8 June 2016.
For enquiries, contact Robert Percival, Section Leader Compliance and Regulatory Enforcement, on 6648 4635 during normal office hours.
