Election (Caretaker) Period Policy

In the lead up to the October 2016 election, all Victorian Councils were subject to a caretaker period that operated for 32 days from 21 September to 22 October 2016.

Election Caretaker provisions are intended to assure the community that Councils and Councillors will not use public resources in election campaigning or make major policy decisions that may bind the incoming Council.

A variety of issues and processes are curtailed or restricted during the election period, including:

  • public consultation processes
  • use of Council resources
  • content of media releases
  • publishing and distribution of Council publications (print and digital)
  • attendance at functions and events
  • assistance to any candidate for the election
