We would like to invite your comments on the draft Social Media Policy before it progresses towards adoption.

The draft policy is available in the Document Library on the right hand side of this page. Please use the Submission Form tab below to provide your response, or email your questions or comments directly to MediaUnit@bmcc.nsw.gov.au.

Deadline for comments: COB, Friday 25 June, 2021.

Contact: Belinda Zammit, Program Leader – Communications & Marketing

Background:

BMCC’s Draft Social Media Policy is based on the template Social Media Policy that has recently been released by the Office of Local Government (OLG). The policy provides a robust framework for the administration and management of Council’s social media platforms.

Given social media has the potential to immediately and significantly impact on Council’s reputation, this policy governs the acceptable use of social media by Council officials (Councillors, Staff and Council delegates). The purpose of this policy is to:

  • guide Council officials on the use of social media to the extent that it relates to their role
  • support legal compliance and protect the image and reputation of Council
  • protect the privacy and wellbeing of Council officials and users of Council’s social media channels, and
  • ensure effective, consistent and appropriate communication across our social media channels.

Thank you for your participation in this feedback process.
