Best Practice Governance Policies
OLG is developing a suite of best practice governance policies. These model policies will use a “best of breed” approach to existing council policies and reflect what OLG sees as best practice in the local government sector.
OLG is currently consulting on two draft model policies relating to social media use by council officials and interactions between councillors and council staff. Links to the consultation drafts and the related circular are available below.
OLG is also conducting an initial round of consultation on a model media policy. A link to OLG’s circular on this consultation is available below.
