Following the election of a new Council, councillors are invited to review the structure of committees and advisory groups before officially adopting a framework.
Wingecarribee Shire Council originally endorsed a committee structure on 23 November 2016 for the 2016-2020 term. On 10 June 2020, Council extended this term by one year to 2021 to align with the extension to the Council term resulting from the decision by the NSW Government to postpone the 2020 local government elections due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Councillor representatives and chairpersons are generally endorsed for a period of two years; however, due to the extension to the Council term the current appointments are for a one year period.
A complete list of all committees, advisory committees, community reference groups and sunset working groups for the 2016-2021 term, and their purpose, is provided below:

At its meeting on 8 February 2017, Council originally adopted its Committee Manual 2016 - 2020, which includes the Terms of Reference for each of Council's committees and reference groups. As is noted above, on 10 June 2020 Council resolved to extend this term by one year to 2021.
The revised Committee Manual 2016 - 2021, including the Terms of Reference, is provided below:
