The Tribunal is required to make a Determination setting the values of allowances for Mayors, Deputy Mayors and Councillors. The Determination must also provide for Council allowance categories.

This Consultation Paper outlines some matters for consideration in making the Determination in order to help facilitate submissions from interested persons and bodies to the Tribunal about the terms of the Determination.

Submissions close on Monday 16 August 2021 and will be published on the Tribunal’s website, unless the person or body making the submission indicates that the submission is confidential, or unless the submission contains information that is identified as commercially sensitive. In these instances, submissions will be published in a form which protects confidentiality or commercial sensitivity. Submissions that contain offensive or defamatory comments, or which are outside the scope of the Determination, will not be published.
