Guidance for Functional Project Teams

These sections provide practical advice for key functional areas within councils and are designed for use by project teams/working groups.

You can access functional areas through the menu to the left and they are listed alphabetically. They are designed to be worked through by the relevant staff and project teams.

The stages described in the Toolkit are intended as a general guide. Merger tasks for different functional areas will occur at various paces, and the tasks and activities required will not necessarily occur in a linear timeframe. In addition, it is not expected that every task will be completed when the new council commences. High priority tasks are discussed in the Guidance for Leaders section.
