Draft Compliance Response Framework
Council at its meeting of 23 April 2015 considered a report in respect to a Draft Compliance Response Framework.  It was resolved:
·         That Council endorses release of the Draft Compliance Response Framework for public exhibition and invite submissions;
·         That a report be brought back to Council on the Draft Compliance Response Framework following public exhibition.
The Draft Compliance Response Framework sets out how Council will respond to customer requests for assistance in respect to a broad range of compliance related issues and the associated response times that can be expected. 
The Framework differentiates between matters that primarily impact the self- interest of private individuals compared to those that impact the broader public interest with the focus of council’s limited compliance and enforcement resources being directed toward action that will benefit the broader public interest.
The exhibition period will be for 28 days from Wednesday, 6 May 2015 till 17 June 2015.  The Council report and Draft Response Framework may be viewed at Coffs Harbour City Council Administration Building, 2 Castle Street, Coffs Harbour during normal business hours and at local libraries during normal opening times.
Or the documents can be viewed here:
Submissions to the Draft Compliance Response Framework are to be submitted no later than 4.30 pm on Wednesday 3 June 2015. For enquiries, contact Robert Percival, Section Leader Compliance and Regulatory Enforcement, on 6648 4635 during normal office hours.
