Council Committees and Advisory Groups

View from Warragamba Lookout

Council currently convenes a range of Committees that meet throughout the year. The two main types of committees supported by Council are Advisory Committees and Management Committees.

Council's Advisory Committees (CACs) can be established for a range of purposes with the intent of providing Council with advice and recommendations to inform the decisions made by Council. A full list of Council's Committees can be found on the Council Advisory Committees page.

Community Management Committees are similar to CACs, however members of these committees are delegated by Council. Under the Local Government Act (1993) Council can appoint these committees to manage certain facilities and/or functions within the community and make decisions on Council's behalf within the limits of their Terms of Reference. A full list of Council's Section 355 Committees can be found on the Section 355 Committees page.
