Council Meetings

Effective from Monday 22 June 2020, Council meetings (only) will move to a blended form which will allow Councillors and staff to attend in person and remotely via Skype. This will ensure compliance with the capacity restrictions imposed by the Public Health Order.
All Committee meetings will continue to be held remotely (via audio visual link) for all attendees.

To ensure compliance with the Public Health Order and Section 10 of the Local Government Act 1993, Council will continue to livestream all Council and Committee meetings.
In accordance with Council’s resolution from 24 August 2020 (NM071-20), registered speakers now have the option of;

  1. addressing the meeting remotely; OR
  2. providing a written submission for staff to read to the relevant meeting.

Any member of the public wishing to address a Council or Committee Meeting should register online, by completing the Request to Speak at Council Meeting form.

Council meets regularly to make decisions for the local government area. Council’s  Code of Meeting Practice explains how all meetings of Council operate and how you can comment on matters before Council.

Residents are encouraged to participate and can register to speak on any item on an agenda. To lodge a request to speak at a Council or Committee Meeting, please complete the Request to Speak at Council Meeting form.
