What’s new or changing

  • The Office of Local Government (OLG) has finalised the Model Media Policy (the model policy).
  • The model policy has been developed following two rounds of consultation with the local government sector and reflects best practice in the local government sector.

What this will mean for your council

  • The model policy is not mandatory, and councils are free to choose whether to use or to adapt it for their own purposes. If adopted, the policy will operate to supplement the provisions of councils’ adopted codes of conduct.
