Council Meeting Procedures and Public Questions to Council

Ordinary Council Meetings

The purpose of Council Meetings is for Council to conduct the business of Council. Council Meetings are open to the public and community members are welcome to attend and observe proceedings.

Ordinary Council Meetings are held at 7pm on the third Tuesday of each month starting 21 February.

These meetings decide policy, community development, and planning matters. They are governed by the Governance (Meeting Procedure) Local Law No. 1 2015.

Meeting Agendas or Minutes 

View our Meeting Agendas or Minutes or visit a Customer Service Centre the day before a meeting for a copy of the agenda. A limited number of copies are also provided at the venues on the night of the meeting.

Reports presented to Council Meetings are available to the public except for those classified as confidential by the Local Government Act 1989.

Planning Forums

A Planning Forum is held on the Monday night prior to the first Council Meeting of each month, to hear submissions in relation to planning matters.

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.

Residents can submit a petition to the Council in writing. The petition must contain the names, addresses and handwritten original signatures of at least 12 people. Division 10, clause 70 of the Local Law describes the process.

Petitions must be in the format specified in the Governance (Meeting Procedure) Local Law No. 1 2015.
