Our Values


The way Councillors and Council staff work and serve the Queenscliffe community is guided by the following values:

  1. Integrity – We take ownership and responsibility for our decisions and are accountable for all that we do.

  2. Respect – We treat everyone with dignity, fairness and empathy, look out for the safety and wellbeing of others, and nurture positive and inclusive relationships.

  3. Community Focus – We always work with our community’s experience in mind and take pride in supporting our community.

  4. Sustainability – We place climate change risks at the core of our decision-making, and take extensive action to protect our natural environment.

  5. Openness – We actively engage with our community and are transparent in our decision-making.

Council values were derived from the Community Vision and Council Plan workshops in 2021.
