HAVE YOUR SAY

Council has developed a Draft Enforcement Policy and is seeking feedback from the community.

The Policy provides a framework to promote consistency in enforcement action and to ensure that any action taken is proportionate to the alleged offence and, where applicable, the principles of natural justice are observed.

Please refer to the Document Library to access the Draft Enforcement Policy

Hard copies of the Policy are also available at Council's customer service centres.

Dear Mr Rainsford,I have studied the Draft Enforcement Policy and I was wondering, why the Document Library doesn't contain a list of References. According to the Harvard Referencing Guide referencing is a standardized method of acknowledging sources for information and ideas that the author(s) has/have used to write an academic paper. Given that the Draft Enforcement Policy is based on a 3E's Philosophy, I had never heard of, I unsuccessfully tried to find more information about it on the internet. However, I found a Behaviour Change Policy Framework "The Four E's Model" (Educate, Encourage, Empower, Enforce) by Knowsley Council in the UK. According to that document the standard and level of education in the community forms the basis of behavioral change and minimizes the need for enforcement. What formal qualifications would an Enforcement Officer have?Kind regards,Angela Schliebs

I don't think you need to vote yourselves stronger powers as ratepayers already resent the unfair way you treat us and refuse to consider our point of view. What you need is better people skills and a willingness to hear what our issues are and to put our needs higher than your desire to remain comfortable and quote your old rules and regulations against us I maintain, as per the American Revolution slogan Taxation without representation is Tyranny and given the unwillingness for you to allow our viewpoints to be properly heard, my experience of Council is that you are bullies and barely fit to have the controls that you do let alone vote your selves stronger powers. Putting a picture of roadside dumping may catch the casual eye but I know full well you will be voting yourselves much stronger powers and you have lied to me.. and sought to undermine my position and I can't trust you as is Time to examine your culture instead of trying to legislate an even nastier approach to ratepayers is what I suggest
