What is the Compliance Response Framework

    The Compliance Response Framework (CRF) was first adopted in 2015.  It details the level of regulatory involvement and response times used by council staff in assessing and responding to the receipt of customer requests associated with a wide variety of issues.  The CRF identifies and describes the most common requests for assistance associated with private and public land use issues. Proposed revisions to the CRF.

    An internal review of the CRF has been undertaken to ensure the matters and response times remain relevant and consistent with service levels. The review has identified the need for additional matters to be included and various changes to better reflect the practice being applied to specific issues. Proposed changes to the Framework can be viewed in the documents attached to the 'Have Your Say' page.

    Further enhancement of the Framework is also proposed through the addition of a risk based escalation hierarchy developed to assist with managing community expectations in relation to possible compliance outcomes.
