The principal consideration for a local government when deciding if it should delegate a power or duty is whether the delegation will improve the efficiency of the local government's operations, whilst ensuring that its policies are consistently implemented.

Section 5.42 of the Local Government Act 1995  (the Act) allows for a local government to delegate to the Chief Executive Officer, authority to exercise any of its powers and duties under the Act except the power to delegate and those listed in Section 5.43.

All delegations made by Council must be by an absolute majority decision.

Section 5.43 - Decisions that cannot be delegated

Section 5.44 of the Act allows the Chief Executive Officer to delegate, in writing, any of their powers or duties (other than the power to delegate) to another employee. The Act also allows for the Chief Executive Officer to impose conditions on any delegations if they desires.

The City of Kalamunda Register of Delegations from Council contains details of all delegations to committees, the Chief Executive Officer and employees made under the Local Government Act 1995 and other relevant legislation.

The Register of Delegations from Council is reviewed annually in accordance with the Act.
