Decisions on issues affecting the community are made at council meetings.
You can come to these meetings to watch, in person or online. You can also ask questions.
We hold ordinary council meetings to conduct the business of Council. Where required, we may also hold special meetings.
We also hold council meetings to deal with planning applications. These are planning and other related matters meetings.
Ordinary council and planning and related matters meetings are scheduled each month.
We conducted all council meetings from July 2021 to March 2022 by video conferencing and livestreaming, with the exception of the special meeting of 17 November 2021. We held council meetings in April, May and June 2022 in person in a COVID-safe way. These meetings were also livestreamed.
We livestream our council meetings so you can watch the proceedings in real-time. These recordings are also available for you to watch later. The dates of future council meetings are on our Council meeting dates, locations and questions page.
