Council and Committee Meetings
Council Meeting details, including agendas and minutes.
We have changed the meeting arrangements since the NSW Government introduced stay at home rules.
Council Meetings are held monthly, on the second Wednesday of the month. We occasionally hold Extraordinary Council Meetings outside of this schedule.
For the duration of the stay at home rules, Councillors will be attending meetings remotely by audio-visual link – there will be limited attendance in the Council Chambers (if any). No public will be permitted to physically attend.
If you would like to speak or provide a submission on an item on the agenda, you must register using the request to speak form.
Council’s open decision making at its meetings is accessible from the live-streaming through Facebook. It demonstrates to the community and other stakeholders that we are operating with transparency, probity, and in the best interests of all concerned.
The elected Council operates in a similar way to a board of a public company. It oversees the activities of Council but is not involved in the day-to-day running of activities.
We are supported by various committees that provide advice on particular issues.
