Delegation Register

Delegated Authority assists with the efficiency of the Shire of Kojonup and is reviewed on an annual basis in accordance with the Local Government Act 1995.

The Local Government Act 1995 provides the power to delegate certain local government functions to the Chief Executive Officer. Furthermore the Act allows for the Chief Executive Officer to sub delegate to another employee (Section 5.44 (1)). This must be done in writing (Section 5.44 (2)). The Act allows for the Chief Executive Officer to place conditions on any Delegations, if desired (Section 5.44 (4)).

Other Acts administered by local government, such as the Building Act 2011, Food Act 2008, Bushfires Act 1954 and Planning and Development Act 2005 also provide the power to delegate functions of local government and references within each delegation subject provide information on the respective head of power.

Once a decision has been made under delegation it is as if the Council itself has made the decision. That is, it is not subject to approval or ratification by the Council.
