Local Governance Statement
Canterbury Triennial Agreement
All local authorities within a region (in our case Canterbury) are required to enter into an agreement at least every 3 years that details their commitment to work effectively together.
The agreement focuses on communication, collaboration and co-ordination.
The councils of Canterbury work together in a wide variety of ways and the triennial agreement ensures this is done in a spirit of cooperation and openness.

Council operates under a range of legislation that provides territorial authorities with specific powers, functions and duties. The Delegations Manual defines and authorises the scope of Council's delegations to committees, the Chief Executive, and the Chief Executive's delegations to other members of the leadership team and staff positions.

Elected member remuneration is set by the Remuneration Authority.
