New archives collection management policy

New archives collection management policy


This consultation is open for contributions.

We invite your feedback on our draft archives collection management policy.

The new policy shows the measures we take to identify, safeguard and preserve archival resources.

The policy has a principle of fair access and the ‘right to know’ and defines why certain information is released to the public. It includes criteria and conditions for the City to accept archives material from our communities.

How you can give feedback

You can view the draft policy and give your feedback by completing an online form.

Covid-19 response

We’re changing how we consult and connect with our communities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We know our residents, workers and visitors are focused on social distancing and health and wellbeing, and many are experiencing economic stress.

While how we consult with you may look a little different, we still want to hear from you and provide plenty of opportunities to have your say on the projects and programs that affect you.
