Behaviour in the Council Chamber

The Council Chamber is open to the public to observe Council meetings. We also live-stream Council meetings via YouTube.

Members of the public attending Council and committee meetings are:

  • expected to behave respectfully at all times
  • not permitted to engage with the Councillors or Council Officers during the course of the meeting.

Officers, Councillors and members of the public have the right to be safe and treated with respect at these meetings.

You may be asked to leave the meeting if your behaviour is considered inappropriate, disruptive or rude.

We will not tolerate any behaviour that threatens the safety of anyone present in the chamber, or which disrupts the ability for Council to conduct its business on behalf of the community.

Submitters can discuss issues with Council on planning applications that Council will subsequently consider. The forum is less formal than a Council meeting and is chaired by an attending Councillor.
