The Shire's Governance Framework examines the principles and practices of good governance at the Shire of Mundaring which all council members and employees are encouraged to adhere to. This document functions as an overarching framework for good governance.

The Governance Framework is endorsed by Council and reinforces and provides context on legislative requirements, Council adopted policies and established practices.

Good governance is about the processes for making and implementing decisions. It is not about making “correct” decisions, but about the best possible process for making those decisions. Good decision-making processes have a positive effect on various aspects of local government including consultation policies and practices, meeting procedures, service quality processes, council member and employee conduct, role clarification and good working relationships.
