How is my application considered?

Council aims to ensure that members of committees reflect the diversity of Banyule’s community including ethnicity, age, gender and our different geographical areas.

All committees have terms of reference with membership selection criteria, which are available by clicking on the committee you are considering. 

Advisory committees and Council

The individual committees have different goals and objectives, but they all rely on members of the community to share their expertise and experience.  

The committees give advice to Council and provide an important link between Council, the community, Victorian Government agencies and a wide range of interest groups. For some committees, a councillor chairs each meeting. All committees have a contact officer, who looks after the arrangements for each.
