Council decisions are made at meetings of the Council or the Planning Decisions Committee. Meetings are conducted in accordance with our Governance Rules.
When are the council meetings?
We generally hold Council meetings every three weeks from late January to December.
Who can attend Council meetings?
Anyone is free to attend Council meetings to contribute to the decision-making process and to witness proceedings.
How can I ask a question or address the Council?
Most Council meetings provide an opportunity for you to address Council about an item that is listed on the agenda, or to ask a question during Question Time.
Instructions for how to register to participate in this aspect of the meeting can be found on the relevant meeting page.
If your question is operational in nature (a customer request), please contact us and our customer service team will assist you.
How do I know what Council will be considering at the meeting?
An agenda for each Council Meeting (which includes full reports, and a series of separate attachments) will be published in the upcoming council meetings page.
This usually happens on Wednesday before the meeting.
How do I find out what happened at the last meeting?
The minutes, which are an official record of the meeting, are uploaded to the past council meetings page.
These documents are usually available before the following meeting.
