Public forum

A Code of Meeting Practice exists to ensure an effective forum is provided for Council committees to formulate and review objectives and policies in respect to the needs/demands of the community, and the efficient operation of the organisation.  

Members of the public may apply to address Council at a public forum, which are held prior to Committee and Council meetings.  This allows members of our community to voice their opinion on a matter at Council.  The address is to be no longer than four minutes, and Councillors may question the speaker following completion of the address with speaker slots limited to 10 minutes in total per speaker. You may address Council once per matter.

Requests to present to Council

To request to present to Council, please submit your request to the General Manager for review and determination by 12 noon the day before the meeting by completing the below Public Forum Registration form.
