Council Meeting Dates


Council usually welcomes members of the public to attend Council meetings and ask questions on any Council related matters. If you have a question to ask at an Meeting of Council, it must be written and received by 10am of the day of the meeting.

However, due to COVID-19, questions submitted for Public Question Time will be read out by the Chief Executive Officer as proxy (where appropriate), until further notice.

How to Submit your Question


Usually, any person may lodge a written submission as a submitter, objector or applicant, and may also request to speak at the relevant Meeting of Council in regards to:

  • A planning matter (for example, a planning permit application) where the person is the applicant or has previously made an objection in accordance with The Planning and Environment Act 1987
  • A matter where Council called for submissions under section 223 of the Local Government Act 1989 (e.g. the council budget) and the presenter has previously made a formal submission

No time will be allocated to presentations on any other agenda items.

However, due to COVID-19, any public presentation and submissions must be in written form only and will be read out by the Mayor at the meeting, until further notice. The maximum time limit of five minutes still applies.

How to Register to make a presentation


Meetings will be accessible online to the public and will be live streamed on Council's YouTube page.

The Council agenda will be uploaded by the end of business on the Friday prior to the Council meeting.
