Meetings of Council

Council is required under the WHS Act to provide a safe workplace for its workers and others at the workplace (public).

Risk assessments are conducted prior to Council meetings and controls are put in place for the protection of our staff and everyone attending these meetings.
It has been determined that the following controls will be put in place for public attendance at Council meetings, commencing with the Committee Meetings scheduled for Tuesday, 14 June 2022:

  • Public seating to return to pre-COVID numbers;
  • The requirement for members of the public to register to attend Council meetings has been removed and seating will be provided at the rear of the Dragon Room;  
  • To prevent overcrowding in the Dragon Room, overflow seating will be provided in the Customer Service area if required; and
  • Directors will be seated at the front of the Dragon Room as per pre-COVID configuration.

Council will provide:

  • Hand sanitiser stations; and
  • Face mask for those that wish to wear them, and it is recommended they be worn when social distancing is not possible.

The Community is encouraged to watch the live broadcast.

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. In-person attendance by speakers may be permitted at the discretion of the General Manager.

Council will continue to livestream all Council and Committee meetings to meet the requirements of Section 10 of the Local Government Act 1993.
