Register of Delegations

Delegations allow for Council staff (and, in limited circumstances, Council contractors) to perform certain powers, duties and functions.

Delegations are a highly effective means of streamlining decision-making and enables Council to concentrate on the broader strategic issues rather than administrative and routine matters. Mansfield Shire Council has many delegations under a wide range of legislation, and such arrangements are appropriate given the diversity of services provided by Council.

Council has adopted the following instruments of delegation derived from our subscription to the Maddocks delegation service, which has become the standard practice of most councils for administering delegations and authorisations.
