We continuously develop a range of corporate, planning, strategic and operational documents that outline the goals and approaches for Council service delivery and community planning.

Council’s Policies are currently under review.  While a Policy listed below may be past its nominated review date, it is still in place and operational. 

You can download some of these documents below, or you can collect a hard copy of any document at the Civic Centres in Melton or Caroline Springs.
