Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

If you believe you can contribute to one of Council’s Section 41 committees here is your chance. You have but one week to make up your mind and let is know.


The City of Unley is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified individuals regarding membership of four (4) Section 41 Council Committees in the roles of Independent Members. The four (4) committees are Community & Culture Committee, Development Strategy & Policy Committee, Infrastructure & Sustainability Committee and Unley Business & Economic Development Committee.

In addition to Independent Members, each committee will include a number of members selected from the Elected Members of the City of Unley.

Applicants who have expertise relevant to the Committee in which they are interested are encouraged to submit their interest. Terms of Reference are available on the website via the link below.

Normally it is expected that the Committees will meet for approximately two (2) hours, every three (3) months. Independent Members will receive a sitting fee. Having said that the Development Strategy & Policy Committee, who I have put my hat in the ring to chair, is likely to meet as much as 9 times this coming year such is the workload ahead of it. That will include a number of public forums.

Please submit your confidential submission outlining your qualifications and experience to:

Carol Gowland
Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive Officer
City of Unley
PO Box 1, Unley SA 5061
Applications will be received until 5pm Friday 30 January 2015.
