Delegated committees

* Delegated Committees of Council may not meet during the COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the Victorian Government.

Delegated Committees are those which are established by Council under section 63 of the Local Government Act 2020 (the Act) that exercises a power, or performs a duty or function, of the Council that has been delegated to that Committee under any Act.


The members of a Delegated Committee's decision-making powers are limited to those matters covered in the Instrument of Delegation. When Council delegates to members of a Delegated Committee, it allows the Committee members to exercise the power to make certain decisions ‘as if it were Council’.
