On 3 December 2018 new legislation became effective and new requirements were introduced regarding the complaints process for councillor conduct. The new requirements affect all local governments in Queensland.
Chapter 5A Part 6 Division 1 of the Local Government Act 2009 requires Council to keep an up-to-date register about Councillor conduct and ensure the public may inspect the register at the local government’s public office and on the local government’s website.
Central Highlands Regional Council has developed a Councillor Conduct Register to record and disclose Councillor unsuitable meeting conduct, inappropriate conduct, misconduct, complaints about the conduct of councillors dismissed by the assessor, and decisions to take no further action in relation to the conduct of councillors investigated by the assessor.
