    I don't like it.

    I would start with something like 'Only issues that fall within the council's remit should be put before them'. I'm not sure what you mean by 'manage by their expectations'- could you try rephrasing it?

    The first clause makes sense but is rather stilted. The second defies comprehension I think you need to work out who's doing the managing and whose expectations you're talking about.

    Only issues which fall within the council's area of control should be submitted to them
