Attendance of members of the public at Council meetings

Members of the public are welcome to attend those sections of Council meetings not deemed confidential. They do so as observers and do not speak to the meeting or enter into debate.

Community Consultation Sessions 

Members of the public may formally address an item on the agenda of a meeting by submitting a request at least a day before the meeting. Please complete the 'Application to Speak' Form, and submit it by noon on the day before the meeting and in accordance with Council’s Code of Meeting Practice and Community Consultation Session Policy. If approved, the individual may speak for five minutes (maximum). 

Individuals wishing to address Council should familiarise themselves with both the Community Consultation Session Policy and the Code of Meeting Practice, both available for download from the links in the above paragraph.

The Mayor and some Councillors make themselves available from 4pm—half an hour before the start of the Ordinary Meeting at 4.30pm—to speak with any resident or ratepayer who wishes to chat with them.
