C​ouncil developed a draft policy which aims to ensure that these relationships are relevant and effective in delivering long term economic, cultural and social benefits for Lane Cove. This policy clearly identifies Council's level of involvement in Sister City relationships and outlines the proposed procedure for the establishment of new Sister City relationships.

Community consultation was undertaken to determine the community's views on this proposed policy.  A number of responses were received which raised a variety of different concerns.  These were outlined in a subsequent report to Council at its Ordinary Meeting of 15 April 2013.  Amendments were made to the policy in light of these submissions to help mitigate the concerns raised and the policy was adopted by Council on 15 April 2013.
