Addressing a Council Meeting

With the easing of Covic-19 restrictions, Council is endeavouring to return to business as usual. Members of the public are now able to attend Council meetings. Social distancing and seat limits will apply.

There are restrictions on the number of people that can be inside the Chamber and the length of time they can stay. You may only be able to stay for parts of the meeting. Priority will be given to those addressing Council during Public Access, then on an item by item basis.

Contact details must be provided before entering the Council Chambers. This will assist with managing numbers and contact tracing.

Attendees are required to follow all directions of staff.

Approval to speak

The Council Customer and Business Services team will contact you before the meeting to advise of the outcome of your request and provide further information. Before applying please read the Code of Meeting Practice to ensure you meet the criteria.

Your application may not be processed if any information is missing. Should you require any further information please contact Customer Service Centre on 02 6655 7300, and ask to speak to the Customer and Business Services team.

Public forum addresses are to be four minutes in length. There is a maximum of four speakers per public forum unless otherwise approved in accordance with the Code of Meeting Practice.

Please note, once Council receives and reviews future advice from the Office of Local Government NSW, plans will be put into place and announced to ensure these facilities can be re-opened safely and in accordance with the Public Health Order and Council thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding.
