Council Meetings

In response to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, future Council Briefings and Meetings will be attended remotely (electronically) by Elected Members, City staff and the public, until otherwise advised.

This is now possible due to amendments to the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996, which were passed by Parliament on 25 March 2020 and came into force on 26 March 2020. The amendments mean local governments can hold electronic Council and Committee meetings during a public health emergency.

Public question time will still occur during these electronic meetings, however, it is modified so that the public can submit the questions prior to the meeting.
