Alternative Approval Process (AAP)

For certain initiatives that require elector approval, local governments can use an alternative approval process instead of the assent voting process.

In this case, the local government advertises its proposed initiative in local papers, and it’s featured under the news and notices section of this website >

If less than 10% of eligible electors do not register their opposition the proposal may go ahead.  If at least 10% of the eligible electors oppose the proposal in the time period provided, the local government must obtain the assent of the electors by voting before it can proceed.
